A Backslider




A Backslider
© 2011 Tom D Blakely

O Abba Father dear to me
This child of Yours has strayed.
To do his will he did persist
And You he disobeyed.
Forgive me now my dearest Lord
My sins, my lack of faith,
And hold me closely in Your arms
I long for Your embrace.

I need You more than anything
This present world can give.
O draw me nearer in Your love
That I in You might live.
Your love and mercy both I find
When I behold the cross,
And see Your Son who died for me
That I might not be lost.

The Saviour paid the price of sin
Remind me Lord I pray,
That I might strive to sin no more
Towards the perfect day.
So help me Lord to turn to You
To pray and read your word,
That I might rest within Your arms
Forever with my God.
