Found this hymn so beautifully touching during Lent last year, that I have posted it here in hopes that Catholics who have strayed away will return soon…and consider going for the Sacrament Of Reconciliation.
Hymn – Prodigal Son
By Father Eugene O’Reilly C.Ss.R (source internet)
1. Father I have sinned, help me find my way,
Remember not my sins, just let me hear You say
I forgive you, I love you. You are mine, take my hand
Go in peace, sin no more, beloved one.
2. Father I have turned, my back and walked away
Depended on my strength, and loved life my own way
3. Father I have closed, my heart to those in need
Thought only of myself, a victim of my greed
4. Father I’ve returned, I’m home with You to stay
Standing by your door, knowing that You’ll say
(The beautiful tune can also be found HERE in midi format. )
