While I was far away
You were listening
Listening for my call
In the midst of my mistakes
You were waiting for me
Waiting to catch my fall

Now I'm coming to my self
I realize I was wrong
I confess I need your help
I will arise and go

I'm going back to the Father
Back to the One
Who offers forgiveness
For all that I've done
As He runs to embrace me
He calls me His son
And I'm home

Going back to the Father
Back to the place
Where all of my sin
and shame is erased
By His unfailing love
and unending grace
And I'm home

I was stumbling in the dark
You were whispering
Whispering to my heart
Then You saw me from afar
You came running for me
Running with open arms

I am loved by You
You approve of me
I am home
I have found in You
My identity
I am home

There's a ring on my hand
A robe on my shoulders
You called me Your son
When I thought it was over
I am home

Dance with my family
Celebrate with friends
The son that was lost
Has come home again
I am home

Softly and tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling for you
Calling for me
Come home
