The Prodigal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Shepherd knows each lost sheep; He seeks those gone astray.
God understands our heartache when a child wanders away.
For the Son of man is come to save that which is lost,
and He rejoices with us when they come to the cross.
~
There is joy in the presence of the angels of God.
A sinner has repented; let's make merry and be glad.
For this, my son was dead, and is alive again.
He was lost, and is found; I've received him safe and sound.
~
Except the Father draw him, he'll not come to the Son.
God hears the prayers of mothers weeping for a lost loved one.
For the Lord is merciful, He is gracious t'ward us,
and He is never willing that any should perish.
~
There is joy in the presence of the angels of God.
A sinner has repented; let's make merry and be glad.
For this my son was dead,, and is alive again.
He was lost and is found; I've received him safe and sound.
~
He was lost and is found; I've received him safe and sound.

  1. I Haven't been over in a while.The story is such a blessing. To know that the Father always has His arms outstretched to welcome the erring home. He is always right where we left Him. I love the looks and sounds on your blog. connie

  3. Hello Deborah~ I have been absent from blogging for quite a qhile and tonight I thought I would drop by and this was the post I found. Those words are so comforting and so true. We have a prodigal and praying for her to turn her heart toward the Lord again. I do hope you have been well. It will be so nice to catch up again. Sending blessings to you and yours from me and mine, Sandra in New Zealand
