father is standing on the porch of eternity
Looking down the pathway of life.
Waiting for you to realize
He can relieve you of all of your strife.
righteousness will kiss you
By His compassion you'll be embraced.
You'll be enveloped by His peace
He'll call the angels to celebrate.
doesn't need to form a jury
You are defended by His own Son.
Who loved us so completely
He died for every one.
if you find that you are wallowing
In the pig pen of sin and shame.
Like the prodigal, bow before Him
And call upon His name.
the joy He offers
The joy of being set free.
You are defended by God's Son
The one who died for you and for me.
