Luke 15:11-32
Matthew 11:25-30


I’ve been a masochist
I’ve made so many mistakes
I’ve wasted my substance on riotous living
I have played a lot of games

Yet His forgiveness is pulsing through my veins
In whom I live and move and have my being

Father, I’ve been so dirty
You are so clean
Yet You have robed me with Your righteousness
Now I am redeemed

I need to be clothed with humility
Anxious for nothing
Don’t want to be wise in my own eyes
Must realize I’m like a newborn baby

Cause I was once so grown-up
Too much for my own good
To gain the world but lose my soul
I thank Christ for the cross and the blood

Father, I’ve been so dirty
You are so clean
And You have robed me with Your righteousness
Now I am redeemed

So welcome, My long-lost son
Climb up into your Daddy’s lap
Your days of wanderlust are done
He has killed for you the fatted calf

Hey everybody, you’re all invited
Hey everybody, you’re all welcome

Come as a little child
Ye who are weary and burdened
Cause He’s prepared a banquet feast
For His long-lost children
He’s preparing a banquet feast for His beloved children …
