Oh Lord make me like the Prodigal Father,
steadfast, forgiving and strong ~
So that even when I have been wounded,
and I feel that I’ve been wronged,
Lord, You will help me to look the other way,
and celebrate the Love within,
that each time someone says “forgive me”
that’s where I can begin.
Help me not to be like the older brother
Who resents his father’s grace
But Oh Dear Lord let me learn the lesson here,
in the mercy of your embrace.
