Jesus and young girl.

Turn Back

I gave you the gift of life,
I watered; tended you -
Providing for your every need;
A friend in need and true.

True to my Word; my promises
Keeping them as you know;
Yet you were wayward; obstinate;
Your love for me dipped low.

Why did you run, my dearest one -
Why did you turn your back?
What could the world have given you -
What was it that you lacked?

You loved and followed other gods
(The god Mammon for one),
But what they've got is valueless
And it will soon be gone.

Turn back to me - I'll hold you close,
I'll warm you with my love;
Don't think upon the worldly things
But aim for those Above.
