“When God Ran” Lyrics

Almighty God, the Great I Am,
Immovable Rock, Omnipotent, Powerful, Awesome Lord.
Victorious Warrior, Commanding King of Kings, Mighty Conqueror and the only time,
The only time I ever saw him run,
Was when


He ran to me,
He took me in His arms,
Held my head to His chest,
Said “My son’s come home again!” Lifted my face,
Wiped the tears from my eyes,
With forgiveness in His voice He said “Son, do you know I still love you?”

The day I left home,
I knew I’d broken His heart.
And I wondered then, if things could ever be the same. Then one night,
I remembered His love for me.
And down that dusty road, ahead I could see,
It was the only time,
It was the only time I ever saw Him run.
And then


He caught me by surprise.
And He brought me to my knees.
When God ran, I saw Him run to me.
I was so ashamed, all alone, and so far away.
But now I know, that He’s been waiting for this day


He said “Son, do you know I still love you?”
