@brownium told me I had to write a worship song as a #firstfruits offering. At first, I was thinking, "Dag! I do FAWM as a *break* from my day job!" (I'm I church music director.) But then I was reading a book about the parables of Jesus which helped me see the parable of the Prodigal Son with new eyes. I wondered what song I'd write to follow a sermon on this parable. Out came "Come Home."
The Father always calls to his beloved
and welcomes the wanderer home.
Leave this land of broken dreams;
Leave your hunger, shame, and remorse.
