Gospel Ballad

Gospel Ballad
by Joel Howard

Paid to be quiet
condemnation's attack

under a yoke of slavery
stripes on our backs

We have lived in constant pain
exploring our sin, running again
"Where are you child?"
God asks as he did Adam

"You've been running, son
you've been hiding
restoring you is my agenda,
freeing you from what's kept you bound up
In tears I go searching for you, lost lamb
Come home to Poppa
Come to the Great I AM."
