    I was listening to a CD this morning, and came across this song. I was moved to tears. I've listed the lyrics here, along with who I believe is speaking in the narrative (in italics). Let me know what you think. In His Grip, joshua

    SON:
    What have I done to get me here? Unraveled and undone, I need my Father.
    What have I done? I’ve followed my feet to nowhere.
    Now I’m here! As I ran, I can run no more. Prodigal me.
    The mountains to the west, I hear them laugh at me.
    They know I’m scared to cross and leave this life I lead.
    Oh my pride! I give you up, a barter for my freedom.
    What will they think as I come stumbling down to join their lives?

    I need to cross this mountain and find my way home
    I seek no greater fortune, rescue me.
    O unmerciful divide, be merciful tonight, show me the other side, prodigal me.

    FATHER:
    The mountains to the east, they’ve swallowed my beloved.
    This house completely incomplete, where is my mortar?
    Where did he go? He followed his feet to nowhere.
    Please come home! You’ve done me no wrong.
    Each evening I look down that road I hope and I wait for you.
    And my servants they look down that road; we watch and we pray for you!

    SERVANTS:
    Master, Master, who’s that man stumbling down that road?
    Could it be the one? Could it be? Could it be?
    Master, Master, it’s your son coming home to join our lives!

    SON:
    I’m looking down this mountain, I see my way home,
    There is no greater fortune, I believe!
    O unmerciful divide, laugh at me no more! I’ve reached the other side. Prodigal me!

    SINGER:
    Could I be the one? Could I be? Could I be?
    Father, Father, we are Your sons coming home to join Your life!

    We’ve finally crossed this mountain and found our way home.
    We seek no greater fortune than Jesus.
    O, how merciful is our God, who gave His only Son!
    O, we worship You tonight! Prodigal me.

    Poignant story well done.

    Picture of many Christians I know who have left the Father but HE has not left them!
