words and music by Steve Slagg

from Hosea 11

lyrics

Oh my son
You know I loved you
You know I called you
By name
Called you out of there
Out of a strange land
You know I love you

But the more I called you
The further you went away
And you traded my name
For your images
I taught you how to walk
And you walked away

Now you’re back
You’re back in strange land
And you’re dying under the sword
How can I give you up?
How can I let you go?

Someday the people will follow the Lord
They will come from all nations
When the lion roars

And they will come
like a flock of birds
from Egypt
trembling from the West
and I will bring them home
