v.1
In the middle of my anguish
I strain to hear His voice;
drownin' underneath the noise inside my head...

Full of a lifetime of confusion;
whispering taunting to my heart.
No wonder why I didn't hear a word he said.

Bridge:
Well, they say I'm a little crazy.
They say I just don't care.
But they don't see me cryin'
prayin' he'll be standing there.

chorus:
Sayin' son I'd like to see you.
I'd like to sit and talk awhile;
just to let you know I love you so
and how I miss your smile.

So I'd like to make an offer.
I'll meet you halfway, don't be scared.
Won't you take My hand, I know you can
and I promise...

I'll be standin' there.

v2
It's soundin' all too familiar,
the reasons that I'd give;
the skin of the truth filled with a lie.

And it was such a hopeless feeling;
when I'd turn and walk away
from the tears of love and sadness in His eyes.

Bridge:
It might sound a little crazy
but tonite I just don't care.
I'm cryin' Abba, Father,
prayin He'll be standing there.

chorus:
Sayin son it's good to see you.
Won't you sit and talk awhile?
I need to let you know I love you so,
and how I miss your smile.

And I'm still holdin' to My offer.
I'll meet you half way, don't be scared.
If you take My hand, I'll take the stand;
and I'll defend you,

yes I'll be standin' there.

v3
Well, it's too hard to explain it,
This mercy still a mystery;
after all the places I have run

I know I'll never comprehend it,
how He found me layin' there;
dyin' in the darkest things that I had done.

bridge:
I don't care if I sound crazy,
but this time I'm not scared.
'Cause when I have to face the music,
I know He'll be standing there.

chorus:
Sayin son it's good to see you.
Don't you worry 'bout a thing.
I know your name is written by My Hand
And in My blood upon that page.

So welcome home, son to your mansion
I built for you with these two hands.
Don't mind the scars you see, they were meant for Me;
And it was worth it...

just to see you standin' there.

I'm not qualified to critique on anything but this work brings the peace of Christ's forgiving love to my heart.

Thank you for sharing here.

God bless,
Rae
