"Running Back to You" as written by and Fred Hammond....
How can You forgive me when I've often gone astray?
How can You think of me when I do things my way?
Turning my back from You the one who loved me first
Having my own desires renewing worldly thirst

You told me You loved me and I should make up my mind
You tell me come back now but I keep wasting time
Feeling so very weak You say I can be strong
I feel I've gone too far You tell me to come home
You love me still and I know this is real

And I am running back to You, I see You're standing there for me
Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to You
Why did I go away when I know I am no good, when I'm on my own?

You told me You could keep me but I've turned it away
I've failed You so much now I don't know what to say
Using the same excuse that I am just a man
You tell me You've been there and show Your nailed, scarred hands
So I can see now I know I am free

And I am running back to You, I see You're standing there for me
Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to You
Why did I go away when I know I am no good?

I have taken advantage of Your love and grace
Forgive me Lord and take me home take me home

I'm running to You Jesus please take me home
See, I've been in this wrong way too long and I can't do right anymore
I'm tired of pain and I don't like fear but Lord I want to be more sincere
I never should have left Your side return me to Your guiding light

I am running back to You, I see You're standing there for me
Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to You
Why did I go away when I know I am no good

I am running back to You, I see You're standing there for me
Your arms are open wide and I don't have to cry no more
You're standing there for me and I am running back to You
Why did I go away when I know I am no good
