return as a Child

return as a Child
by Joel Howard

Return as a Son
As a daughter would come
To your daddy, the one
Who bore you, raised you

Return on your knees
Return saying please
Return with esteem
He knows you, indeed

Return to the one
Who fed, bled and more
Who has all in store
Who has no pretense

Return to the Father
The Daddy, none other
Who did not clean out your room
Who did not abandon you

O Church of God
Return to your Father
To Abba, your Maker
Return, now not later

Return as a child
Return to his heart
Return to where you are
Known near and far

Return now, not later
Return ever after
Return to the sin-forgetter
Who makes all things better
