I Have Returned To The God Of My Father

I've heard this a couple of times in live performances. I've searched the internet and asked around and can't find the lyrics and the musical notes. If anyone can lead me in the right direction I would appreciate it very much.
Thank you!

Haven't heard that song in Years!
I believe it was written by Marijohn Wilkins.
I first heard it as a teen in the 70s.

See if these are the lyrics to it. I have only heard it a couple of times several years ago. It was a beautiful song but I just can't remember if this was the version I heard.

Good Luck in your search!


I Have Returned


I have returned to the God of my childhood,
To the same simple faith as a child I once knew;
Like the prodigal son I have longed for my loved ones,
For the comforts of home and the God I outgrew.
I have returned to the God of my childhood,
Bethlehem's Babe, the prophet's Messiah;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

I have returned to the God of my mother,
With unfailing faith for the child of her heart;
She said bring them up the way that you want them,
Thank God when they're grown, they'll never depart.
I have returned to the God of my mother,
I learned at her knee He's the lily of the valley;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

I have returned to the God of my father,
The most God-like man a child could know;
I just heard a shout from the angels in glory,
Praising the Lord a child has come home.
I have returned to the God of my father,
Creator of heaven and earth, God of the universe;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

I have returned to the Yahweh of Judah,
On my knees I did fall where the wall now stands;
This lesson I learned as I've worked my way homeward,
The Saviour of all is a comfort to man.
I have returned to the Father of Abraham,
The shepherd of Moses who called Him the great I am;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

--Marijohn Wilkin

That's the one I remember.
I did some seaching and couldn't even find lyrics.

Is that the one you're looking for, bruren777?
