[Verse 1:]
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

[Verse 2:]
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.

[Chorus:]
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

[Verse 3:]
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

[Chorus:]
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

[Bridge:]
I have taken advantage of Your love & grace
Forgive me Lord and take me home
Take me home

[Tag:]
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
You're standing there for me
and I'm running back to you
