PostSubject: Come Home   Tue Sep 06, 2011 10:27 am

This is a song I wrote a bit ago. The premise of the song is something I have struggled with in my own Christian life. I get so wrapped up in trying to "live the Christian life" on my own. I want to "fix" myself, as it were, and always end up failing in the end. This song was something on my heart that Christ is constantly waiting for us to return home to Him and let Him change us. The Christian life is only possible with Christ and all Christ wants is our honesty and submission. He is ALWAYS waiting for us to come home into His loving and open arms. I hope these words speak to you as they do to me! Let me know what you think!


Come Home

God, I’m so over trying to fix myself.
I can’t do this, not without all your help.
It’s an everyday occurrence, it’s my new routine.
Unbreakable habits display my needs.

I find myself struggling to press on for you,
Forgetting these truths I’ve been told
Then I hear you say,

Oh please come home, come home to me
Why can’t you believe, I am all that you’ll ever need?
I’ll take your burdens,
I’ll make them light.
Just come right home
Just come right home.
Return here tonight.


God, I never truly gave this heart away,
Take my life, take my will, take this day,
Surrendering my useless attempts to survive,
Giving up all these things I once called mine.

I find myself struggling to press on for you,
Forgetting these truths I’ve been told
Then I hear you say,

Oh please come home, come home to me
Why can’t you believe, I’m all you need?
I’ll take your burdens,
I’ll make them light.
Just come right home
Just come right home.
Return here tonight.


Lifting me from my derogation,
Providing me with your salvation.
Search my soul, and replace my will,
I’ll follow you, I have this void to fill
I long to hear, for the life I was lent,
Well done my good and faithful servant.
Lend me the strength, from the life you gave,
I turn your direction as you say

Oh please come home, come home to me
Why can’t you believe, I’m all you need?
I’ll take your burdens,
I’ll make them light.
Just come right home
Just come right home.
Return here tonight.

I like the realness of this piece. The very first line, "God, I’m so over trying to fix myself," made me want to keep reading. I've actually said that before, as I'm sure many others have. The best part of the lyric is the refrain, I think, as it should be. I wish I could hear this one sung.

This song was sung by my girlfriend at the time... who is now my ex. I will probably re-record it with my current girlfriend and change the tune (add some piano). But you can hear what it sounds like previously here: www.myspace.com/robmcmichaelmusic
