Lenten Songs

2 of my favorite songs that are commonly sang during Lent.

I made my own versions coz I just feel like singing them today.

First song is by Fr. Eugene O'Reilly, a song about the prodigal son, where the father and the son has a dialogue. 

Father I have sinned,
help me find my way.
Remember not my sins,
just let me hear you say::
I forgive you, I love you 
You are mine, take my hand. 
Go in peace, sin no more, 
Beloved one.
Father I have turned,
my back and walked away
Depended on my strength
and lived life my own way
Father I have closed,
my heart to those in need.
Thought only of myself,
a victim of my greed.
Father I have loved,
if love’s the word to use.
I’ve played so many games,
they’ve left me so confused.
Father I’ve returned,
I’m home with you to stay.
Standing at your door,
knowing that you’ll say
got the lyrics from this site

warning: don't listen to my version of the song if you don't really want to ruin your day lolz. I'm not a professional singer and I have a very low voice so my version is low tone. But, I love my voice so I'm going to share this in my blog. 

My version:
sorry about the barking dogs and other noises in the background.

2nd song I love during Lent is Hosea - Come Back to Me

Come back to me with all your heart
Don’t let fear keep us apart
Trees do bend though straight and tall
So must we to others call

Long have I waited for
Your coming home to me
And living deeply our new life

The wilderness will lead you
To the place where I will speak
Integrity and justice
With tenderness
You shall know.

My Version: same warning as the first song :D

I felt like singing for Jesus today so I added this Tagalog song which I love singing to Him, to thank Him for what He has done for me and the only thing I can offer is my heart and soul.
