HOME SICK

Written by: Larry McMillan Jr.

I used to pray daily 
down on my hands and knees.
I used to help others
 in there times of need.
I used to be a light 
to those surrounding me.
I used to carry my cross daily, 
and walk in humility.
I used to have a heart 
UNCORRUPTED and pure.
I used to not yield to temptation 
when sin knocked on my door.
I used to know YOU, and recognize Your voice
 until I chose to stray.
What a grave mistake that was!
 A price no one can afford to pay!
But now I long with desperation - inside I yearn
I’m all spent out like the prodigal son and to You I want to return.
