Love Rescued Me

Words and music by Joe

I was a prodigal for so very long
Out on the hills, blind and alone
But despite of me I was somehow still your son

The weight of my sin was dragging me down
All my guilt and shame was still hanging around
But you knew I’d fall before my knees hit the ground

Love rescued me, Love rescued me, Love rescued me

I was long gone, content with my grave
Until you came down and rolled my stone away
You called to me; you raised the dead on redemption’s day

Love rescued me, Love rescued me, Love rescued me

We seed of Abraham scattered across the land
Gathered from dust and ashes into your hand
We were yours long before that day began

Love rescued me, Love rescued me, Love rescued me
