Homecoming

Lord I confess that I’ve been a criminal

I’ve stolen your breath and sang my own song

And Lord I confess that I’m far from innocent

These shackles I wear I bought on my own


Scarlet sins had a crimson cost

You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

An empty slate at the empty grave

Thank God that stone was rolled (away)


Lord I confess I’ve been the prodigal

Made for Your house but walked my own roads

Then Jesus came and tore down my prison walls

Death came to life when He called me by name


I see bright crimson robes draped over the ashes

A wide open tomb where there should be a casket

The children are singing and dancing and laughing

The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming


Roses in bloom pushed up from the embers

Rivers of tears flow from good times remembered

Families are singing and dancing and laughing

The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming


Heaven joins in with a glorious sound

And the great cloud of witnesses all gather ‘round

‘Cause the ones that were lost are finally found

The Father is welcoming this is our homecoming
