P R O D I G A L H E A R T Lyrics – Joshua Leventhal

How quickly I forget
The weight held in Your scars
How swift to separate
My fear from who You are
How easily I turn
From Your beauty to my dust
How many times must I
Re-settle into trust

I’m slow to find
Your voice behind the noise

But how quickly You come running
Over hills to welcome me
How immense Your fierce affection
That You’d bleed until I’m free
How steady are the hands
That stay my slipping feet

So now we’re here again
By my rebellious heart
Was so sure You’d let me go
But despitе me here You arе
Your death the only thing
That could pierce deeper than my shame
Your blood alone could quiet
The roar of cosmic blame

Your kindness more
Than my fickle heart deserves

And how quickly You come running
Over hills to welcome me
How immense Your fierce affection
That You’d bleed until I’m free
How steady are the hands
That stay my slipping feet

You’ve clothed me in Your finest robe
Your name on the line by crediting mine
Older brothers get angry
And the kindness You’ve shown
But there was price in the mercy
Far greater than any we’ve known

And how quickly You came running
Over hills to welcome me
How immense Your fierce affection
That You’d bleed until I’m free
How steady are the hands
That stay my slipping feet

How steady are the hands
That stay my slipping feet
