Back in My Father’s House Again!

I’m so happy here,
With my Father dear,
Once lost, now I’m near again!
(It was) First His smiling face,
Then His warm embrace,
I’m surprised by grace again!
  I was lost, now I’m found again!
I was dead, but now I live!
Come rejoice with us, and be merry then.
Back in my Father’s house again!
Robe, ring, sandals on
And my hunger’s gone!
Back where I belong, again!
(Because He) Clothed me thoroughly,
(And then He) Reinstated me!
(Now I’m) Back in the family again!

I love this song! I still cry whenever I hear it. It's such a joyful song but it tells of the Father's loving, tender, forgiving heart toward us.

Based on the famous story of The Prodigal Son, this is the only time in the Bible when we see the Father looking and then running toward and embracing His returned Prodigal Son. How many times have we experienced this in our daily lives? Our Christian lives?! The welcoming arms of our dear Father! I'm surprised by Grace again!

I am so happy to be back in the Father's house again and again and again! Thank you, Father!
