Wondering how I've drifted so far
It was so easy to forget
That you gave your life for me
And that undeserved gift
So often I take with complacency
I forget how much it cost you
To give me the life that I now live
A life I did not deserve
I remember when you were my first love
And how I wanted to spend
Every moment with you
But now it's so easy
To put things off
And rationalize my excuses
Of "better" things to do
But how I miss you How can I say that I love you
If I barely even talk to you
How can I say that I love you
If I so often ignore you

Father, rekindle the fire
Bring back the joy that I felt
When I first felt your grace
I finally understood
There is a love greater than I'll comprehend
Break me out of this apathy
Draw me close to you
I make that my prayer
I need you, I've always needed you
But I let myself get so wrapped up
In the things of this world
And I forget how much you love me

I wish that I could truly say
Your love is all I need
Make that catch phrase so real to me
So Father, here's my prayer
To know you and to love you
Rekindle the fire
I need you
I have always needed you

Thank you for such patience
And all the gifts that you give to me
Even as I slowly drift away
Bring me to you again
