When this upside down world shakes your heart stone cold,
And you lie shivering 'neath blankets of loss.
When life cuts ribbons out of your heart,
And ties cruel knots in every good thing.
When you don't know how to face tomorrow,
Because today spits in your face.
When your feet have slipped away from the line,
While the world kicks you in the back of the knees.
When you long for a safe place to rest your head,
And the warm shelter of true love.
When you remember Him, and all that is good in Him,
And that He is the only good thing about you.
When you want to wear His yoke,
Because there is rest in His burden light.
When you want your wounds to heal,
So you surrender to His.
When you are through with this life,
But you want to live again.
When you're on your face at the foot of the cross,
And you can't stop calling His Name.
COME HOME, MY FRIEND, COME HOME.
When you fall in His arms,
And surrender your life, you'll know...
That He holds all that you are, loves all that you are
And that you are home...
