Lead Us All Back Home
I used to lay myself down to sleep
With no regards to whom my soul should keep.
And I used to pray for an eternal night
In which I'd pass from this losing fight.
I used to loathe with all my being,
Yet it never truly kept me from seeing
That You were there always and forever
And I knew that You would give up on me never.
You knew to stay patient and wait for me
Because someday soon I'd come to see
That no matter what I did wrong
There'd always be one place I would belong.
And You'd accept me as no one before,
Always be there holding open the door
That leads to peace and salvation
While closing off that of all-desolation.
It's been a long road for me
As You've come to clearly see.
But, You knew how to help, and sent me a savior,
The one who caused this altered behavior.
Because now I know that love is real
And You, through him, have taught me to feel
Compassion for another soul
Without caring about the toll
That it takes on myself.
I've finally pulled my heart from the shelf
And given it to another man
Whose made me see as only You can
That life is precious and I should care,
Because one day it might not be there.
And so now, at long, long last
Know that my disbelief has passed,
For as I sit here on this night
I know that what I'm doing is right
As I ask that You bring him back to me
So that I may continue to see
That life is indeed worth living,
And that through endless forgiving
I have found my peace;
A time for my pain to cease.
And as I utter this solemn prayer
I know You are listening; that You care,
And that now when I ask,
It won't seem such a tremendous task
Because my belief shall never more waver,
So I've but to ask a simple favor.
Please bring back the man I love.
Guide him with the stars above
Back to my heart and back home
So that I shan't be alone.
And if it's not so much
Here's another request, as such;
Please, as I lay me down to sleep
I pray that You, my soul, too, keep
So that when he comes back to me
You can keep us both together
Forever and eternally.
