Welcome

Never doubt My love for you
Even though you’ve wandered far
Take one look at the cross
Where I welcomed you with open arms
There is no crime you’ve committed
That I’m not prepared to forgive

Come unto Me
And you will be welcomed with open arms
Come, run to Me
And you will be welcomed with open arms

See My arms outstretched for you
See your name in every wound
How could I more plainly show
That My heart will welcome you
The door is standing open
There is room for you to come in

Come unto Me
And you will be welcomed with open arms
Come, run to Me
And you will be welcomed with open arms

STORY BEHIND THIS SON...

(Matthew 4: 17)
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."

(Luke 15:21-22)
"And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandles on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and be merry; for this son of mine was dead, and has come to life again; he was lost, and has been found.'"

(John 12:32)
"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself."

In writing Christian music,
lyrics have to be
the heartbeat of the song.
After all, it is the lyrics
that primarily distinguish Christian music
from secular music.
It's not the only mark
of distinction,
but it is
the most important.
