My son, My son,
It's been a while
where is your smile?
Did the troubles of this world
shackle your lips from exclaiming joy
Did the sorrows of this world wound your heart
and so repress you from praying?
Did the world shatter you that your faith is now dwindling?

Don't fear
Don't fear
For I-your Father am so near
Don't cry
Don't cry
just lift your hands to the skies and say

I surrender to You O God
I surrender to You O Lord Jesus
I surrender to You O Holy Ghost
All divine three
take all of me
and control me
!

I cannot do it on my own
without You I am so alone
so I cry out to You
Father, Father, Father
I call out to You
Carry me through
the seas of adversity

Deliver me
deliver me
from the trouble which numbs me
deliver me from all evil
draw me close to You my God
That I may hold on You
and sit upon Your rock

O Father,
I have sinned
bled with hate
stained with fault
the mouth I praise You with
I poison it with insult
the hands I raise
are used to strike those who agitate me
O God I am double standard

My Father in Heaven
what have I done
to prove the love You give
this without price or condition
without term or time?
O God with a heart filled with want
filled with contrition now
I cry out to You

Father God
I have sinned again
and with anger upon my hands
fault has scarred my heart
that I have failed to love with all my soul

O Father God
far I have wandered from You
still You call
still You call
for me to return

Here I am
Here I am
sinful and forlorn
I fall short of grace
I am in no place
to seek Your face!

Then You call- call my name
despite of my sins and shame
clothed my naked body with coloured robes
annoint my body with perfume and oil
You put upon my finger a golden ring
O my God You dance and sing for me

Father God
Your love is so beautiful to me

Angels above
saints and cherubs
all fall before Your throne
As flowers unfold
as flowers bring their fragrance into the air
so does my soul bring praises to You
from this unworthy lips of mine!
I was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Heard a voice in my head sing. God is awesome. Reminded me of the prodigal son.

I was having a really tough day today. I felt really upset, stressed, and agitated to the point where it was hard for me to pray. Reading this made helped me calm down and realize my need for God's love which he gives unsparingly despite my faults and failures. Thank you for sharing this with us all. It is truly beautiful. I'm sure you have touched others with this as you have helped my come back home to God after a day of wandering far off in the distance.
God bless. :)

Thank you very much for the kind comment. I have experienced upsetting and even excruciatingly angry moments that have led me to think of dangerous things, but you know the Holy Spirit has helped me to stay on track. Praise God, the Holy Divine trinity:).
