I'VE COME TO TAKE YOU HOME

Gerald Crabb

"Go plead with your mother" were the words of Hosea
As he sent his children to extend his mercy
So they journeyed down the old path that led to much destruction
All the while their loving hearts were hurting
Their hope was crushed inside as their compassion was denied
The woman they so loved seemed like a stranger.
Heartbroken and alone they took the long road home
For sin now reigned, and hope seemed gone to change her

One day the word was told some slaves were being sold
A restless love sent Hosea seeking
One by one they brought them in so beaten down with sin
Within his chest his anxious heart was beating
All at once she caught his eye; from his lips the bids were high
She could not believe the voice that she could hear
Would he through judgment take her life, forever end his pain and strife?
What would happen as she saw him drawing near her?

"I've come to take you home; I know that you've done wrong
But for you I'd give my life through the sorrow pain and strife
I couldn't let you go.
Let's leave the past behind; love conquers one more time."
He took her hand and said, "There's a new day just ahead.
I've come to take you home."

Now I've stood in that same place, bound by sin a broken slave
From the depths of my despair I've prayed for mercy
I heard his word, "The price was paid on the cross for you that day;
Take my hand now, child, and welcome to the family."
 
"I've come to take you home; I know that you've done wrong
But for you I gave my life through the sorrow pain and strife
I couldn't let you go.
Let's leave the past behind; love conquers one more time."
He took my hand and said, "There's a new day just ahead.
I've come to take you home."
