Come Home

I’m reading the excellent Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi by Amy-Jill Levine, and as I contemplated the parable of the prodigal son I tried to imagine what kind of song might be an appropriate response to the story. Here’s what I came up with:

The Father always calls to his beloved
and welcomes the wanderer home.
Leave this land of broken dreams;
Leave your hunger, shame, and remorse.
Come home,
come home,
come home,
come home.
