"Belong" as written by and Christopher M. Rice....
Fading memories ignored
I crawl across the forest floor
Pool reflects an orphan child
Dirty, lost, alone and wild
Fatherless and nameless still
Fallen heart and broken, will
There ever be a place where I belong
I cower 'neath the monster trees
And try to stand on tired feet
But gravity knocks me to the ground
Where I give up, and tears roll down
I claw the dust and beg the end
Curse the day that I began
To hope there'd be a place where I belong
I hear a sound I recognize
You lift my chin and seek my eyes
Song of love you sing to me
I ache to sing it back to Thee
"Father Love prepares a place
Brother Jesus leads the way
Follow to the place where you belong!"
How did I miss this wondrous song?
The forest sang it all along
"River rinses all your shame
Father offers you His name
Father Love prepares a home
Brother Jesus leads you on
Follow to the place where you belong!"
"Father Love prepares a place
Brother Jesus leads the way
Follow to the place where you belong
Follow to the place where you belong!"

    General CommentGod redeems. It starts by describing our pitiful, human selves: "Fatherless and nameless", blind and hopeless in the darkness. But "Father love", who created us, is known to us and seeks us out. How did we miss it, when creation "sings" his glory? He takes our shame, gives us a name and home, a place where we belong. God redeems.
