Homecoming (Cory Asbury)

But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
Luke 15:22-24

I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me,
for I have redeemed you.
Isaiah 44:22

VERSE 1
Lord I confess that I’ve been a criminal
I’ve stolen your breath and sang my own song
And Lord I confess that I’m far from innocent
These shackles I wear I bought on my own

CHORUS
Scarlet sins had a crimson cost
You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross
An empty slate, at the empty grave
Thank God that stone was rolled (away)

VERSE 2
Lord I confess I’ve been the prodigal
Made for Your house but walked my own roads
Then Jesus came and tore down my prison walls
Death came to life when He called me by name

SPONTANEOUS
And I can see it now
Smiling in heaven
You and I, You and I

BRIDGE
I see bright crimson robes draped over the ashes
A wide open tomb where there should be a casket
The children are singing and dancing and laughing
The Father is welcoming, this is our homecoming

Roses in bloom pushed up from the embers
Rivers of tears flow from good times remembered
Families are singing and dancing and laughing
The Father is welcoming, this is our homecoming

Heaven joins in with a glorious sound
And the great cloud of witnesses all gather ‘round
‘Cause the ones that were lost are finally found
The Father is welcoming, this is our homecoming

TAG
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The Father is welcoming, this is our homecoming

SPONTANEOUS
Can you see it now, standing on the shores of heaven
You and I and our families
Singing and dancing and laughing
There’s truly no place like home, yeah
Jesus, You’re so beautiful
See Him face to face
