The Prodigal Song

The Prodigal Song
Cory Asbury
To Love a Fool

Verse 1

How faintly I remember Your love song over me

But the further that I wander, the noise is deafening

Now the only thing I feel is how far You are away

This distance now between us is driving me insane


Chorus 1

Father, I miss You

My heart is ready now

To follow the sound, the sound of Your voice

That echoes inside

Father I’m desperate

I lost my way somehow

I’ll follow the truth, the truth of Your love

Back into the light

Lead me back home


Verse 2

I traded trust for pleasure and diamonds for fool’s gold

I made the world my treasure, but underpriced my soul

Then a whisper through the numbness, a melody of hope

That love song I remember is leading me back home



But I never reach the gate

Before You come running to me

All the words I’ve rehearsed for days

Just fall at Your feet

No, I never reach the gate

Before You come running to me

All the years I threw away

In one embrace are redeemed


Chorus 2

Father I’ve missed You

My heart is overwhelmed

Here in Your arms, is where I belong

Forever at home

Father, I love You

Nothing could take Your place

You were the first and You’ll be the last

Love of my soul

Lead me back home


We'd Love to Stay Connected with You.
