I Have Returned
by Bill & Gloria Gaither

Album: Israel Homecoming
by Bill & Gloria Gaither


(Verse 1: Worship Leader)
I have returned to the God of my childhood,
To the same simple faith as a child I once knew.

(Pre-Chorus 1:)
Like the prodigal son I have longed for my loved ones,
For the comforts of home and the God I outgrew.

(Chorus 1: Choir Unison)
I have returned to the God of my childhood,
Bethlehem's Babe, the prophet's Messiah;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

(Verse 2:)
I have returned to the God of my father,
The most God-like man a child could know.

(Pre-Chorus 2:)
I just heard a shout from the angels in glory,
Praising the Lord a child has come home.

(Chorus 2:)
I have returned to the God of my father,
Creator of heaven and earth, God of the universe;
He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

(Bridge: Worship Leader)
I have returned to the Yahweh of Judah, on my knees I did fall where the wall now stands.
This lesson I learned as I've worked my way homeward, the Savior of all is a comfort to man.

(Chorus 3:)
I have returned to the Father of Abraham,
The Shepherd of Moses who called Him the Great I Am; He's Jesus to me, Eternal Deity;
Praise His name, I have returned.

(Chorus 2)
