Lord Jesus, I come to you today
Just like a child
Thirsting and hungering for your love
I roamed the world in a desperate search
For love, for hope and something to smile about
I did find some but so shallow and ephemeral it was
And then I came away thirsting and hungering again.
Lord, I lay aside my pride and all
I push away my own self-wisdom
crawl back to you like a baby thirsty for its mother’s milk
Sweet Jesus, take me in your arms.
Let me feel love like I never did before
Let me hope like I never dreamed of before
Because in your gentle arms is love, pure and sure.
I thank you because you never bar the door
Even to a prodigal coming back home for solace.
