Prodigal Lyrics

It’s been a long time since you felt peace
In the valley you made where you’re not meant to be
Where the shame throws shadows on you
But don’t you forget
That you’re headed to more
But you’ve settled for less
Don’t buy the lie “it’s as good as it gets”
The same feet that left you lost and alone
Are the very same feet that can bring you back home

Wherever you are, whatever you did
It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end
Your Father will meet you with arms open wide
This is where your heart belongs
Come running like a prodigal

There will be nights, when you hear whispers
Of the life you once knew, don’t let it linger
Cause there’s a grace that falls upon you
Don’t you forget
In the places your weak
He is very strong
Don’t ever believe “you don’t deserve love”
The same God that protects you when you’re lost and alone
Is the very same God that is calling you home

Wherever you are, whatever you did
It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end
Your Father will meet you with arms open wide
This is where your heart belongs
Come running like a prodigal

Oh…
Let your life be made new
Oh…
As you come into view
Your Father’s not waiting, no he’s running too
He’s running straight to you

Wherever you are, whatever you did
It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end
Your Father will meet you with arms open wide
This is where your heart belongs
Come running like a prodigal

  • Dawn Hagen says:

    Evan and Samantha lost their physical lives(19yrs old) in the evening hours of August 17, 2015. Evan was taking Samantha home after they just finished watching a movie. I was able to say I love you to Evan, my son one last time and gave him a hug. That was Gods gift to me. The lord was preparing me for these days ahead.
    Through such tragedy, the Lord has given us an incredible sense of peace. The Lord will never abandoned us in our greatest time of need nor did Jesus in their’s. These songs have a message of hope in the midst of sorrow. Please pray for healing for Sam’s family, ours, the first responders that arrived and could do absolutely nothing but stand back.
    After listening to the various songs you have played n this radio statio, I see the testimony you have to continue to go out and be fishers of men. That is exactly how God is using each us to reach the lost and comfort the broken. Their physical death was not in vain and if we continue to follow Jesus, he will continue to bless us in so many ways.
    My husband and I feel a deep calling to serve the Lord and it is by sharing Samantha and Evan’s story of eternal love as well as Gods love for each and everyone of us.
    In Christ Jesus

    First, I love this band of believers! No doubt, our God is using them to share His forever love to all who are willing to call Him, Lord!
    How appropriate and fitting~Sidewalk Prophets singing the words Jesus (the greatest prophet ever!) shared with the world so many years ago. His love, His forgiveness is still available for all people, regardless of the mess we made of our lives.
    Thank you,
    Vicki
