He Came Back For Me

As a child I grew up in church so many years ago
As a teen I turned my back on God and wandered
In my early twenties I had truly lost my way
My life was heading down a lonely path

My mind had become mixed up from the things that I was taking
My body was a scrawny, hippie mess
Most people thought that I was destined to be left behind
Then suddenly my life was turned around

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
Abd that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

Over forty years ago this all happened in my life
I have never turned my back on Him again
And I know if you have walked away and found you’re lost
That He’ll come back for you just the same

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

He doesn’t ask us where we’ve been
He doesn’t ask us what we did
He doesn’t ask us why we left
He doesn’t ask us why we hid
He tells us that He loves us
He wraps His arms around us
He asks us to be His
And I chose to be His because

He came back for me
Jesus came and met me where I was
He told me that He loved me
And that He died for me
I asked Him to take over my life

This poem/song was inspired by Rev. Robert Newton speaking to an APEPT convention 5 years ago. I was prompted to watch the message today on YouTube. Here is the link

  1. I’m so glad He cares about His lost sheep! What a wonderful Shepherd we follow! Thank you for sharing this excellent psalm and reminding me of the fact that our Savior looks for us when we lose our way! I need to pray more for those who have lost their way. Thank you, Pete!
