"Prodigal" as written by and John Mark Hall....
Living on my own, thinking for myself
Castles in the sand, temporary wealth
Walls are falling down, storms are closing in
Tears have filled my eyes, here I am again

And I've held out as long as I can
And now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again,
Will you take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend,
And it left me high and dry
I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end?
Daddy, here I am
Here I am again
Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

Curse this morning sun, drags me in to one more day
Of reaping what I've sown, of living with my shame
Welcome to my world, and the life that I have made
Where one day you're a prince, the next day your a slave

And I've held out as long as I can
And now I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again,
Will you take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend,
And it left me high and dry
I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end?
Daddy, here I am
Here I am again
Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

And I've held out as long as I can
And NOW I'm letting go and holding out my hand

Daddy, here I am again,
Will you take me back tonight
I went and made the world my friend,
And it left me high and dry
I drag Your name back through the mud
That You first found me in
Not worthy to be called Your son
Is this to be my end?
Daddy, here I am
Here I am again

    General CommentThis story is repeated all throughout the Bible. The Old Testament Israelites were constantly stuck in this cycle: doing their own thing, realizing their fault, and crawling back to God. God, who we wrong again and again, accepts us back. Not only does he accept us, but he hikes up his robes, exposes his ankles and runs to embrace us. That's the depth of his love. Despite the fact that we "drag His name through the mud" that we wallow in, he loves us.
