I Will Arise and Go, Back To My Father's Home

Post by apazo » Thu Jan 15, 2015 8:34 am

Hello,

Even after a vigorous and thorough search in the internet, I have been unable to find the lyrics of this classic hymn; and shall be most grateful if someone will help fill the void (the remaining verses).

The first verse and chorus go like this:

I will arise and go, back to my Father's home
He will forgive I know
And I no more shall roam

Back, back to my Father's home
Never again to roam
I will arise, I will arise
and go to my Father's home.

Thank you!

THE PRODIGAL SON

There was a young man who had the best of everything
He was the first born of a wealthy man
But he was not satisfied with the best of everything
So he took his possessions in his hand

He traveled far and wide and he tasted worldly pleasure
But deep inside, he was lonely without measure
He wound up in a pig pen, nearly dead
Then he raised his eyes toward heaven and he said

I will arise and go back to my father's house
I will beg him to forgive me for the fool I've been
I will arise and go back to my father's house
I will gladly be a servant if he'll take me back again

I was a young man who had the best of everything
I was the first born of a hardworking man
But I was not satisfied with the best of everything
So I took my possessions in my hand

I traveled far and wide and I tasted worldly pleasure
But deep inside, I was lonely without measure
I wound up in las vegas, nearly dead
Then I raised my eyes toward heaven and I said

I will arise and go back to my father's house
I will beg him to forgive me for the fool I've been
I will arise and go back to my father's house
I will gladly be a servant if he'll take me back again?

So I did arise and go back to my father's house
I said, father, I'm sick and tired of being alone
So I did arise and go back to my father's house
And then he wrapped his arms around me
And said, son, you're welcome home
