Once I strayed away from Him who loved me so dear,
I had ventured into a world full of pitfalls and holes
I was lost in the crowd of despair and loneliness,
until someone showed me the way back into the fold.
I realized, I had failed God terribly
I cried, wept and asked for forgiveness,
He readily received me in His open arms,
now He holds my hands firm and tight.
He is ready to receive all who truly come,
In their wretchedness, sin and despair,
those who are ready, willing to be saved,
those who will choose to remain within His gates.
