"RUN TO ME"

Verse 1
Out on the streets with nothing to eat,
Hungry most of the time;
You're now on your own, ran away from your home,
Thinking you'll do just fine.
It seems better this way, couldn't stay any longer
With bitterness growing stronger;
You just couldn't stand to stay there another day.
Verse 2
You feel it's a fact that there's no going back,
Seems no one back home understands
What's inside of you and what you're going through,
So you took yourself out of their plans.
You're looking for love, now, the kind you've been missing,
For someone with time to listen.
Well, a good Friend of mine, He always has time,
And He sent me here today, to tell you
Chorus 1
"Run to Me, come to Me, when you feel alone,
If your future is unknown;
I'll love you as My own.
Run to Me, come to Me, into My open arms;
Oh, I'll be there to comfort you
And help you carry on."

Verse 3
Tired of abuse, you had to cut loose,
You broke from the heartache and ran.
You now live on the run, chasing some fun,
Sleeping when and wherever you can.
Some nights you feel like you're not gonna make it;
Some days you get up and fake it,
Well, Jesus can help you, and walk you through the darkest times.
[Walk you through the darkest times.]
Verse 4
'Cause He had no bed, no place for His head,
He knew about life on the road.
He'd eat any place where they'd welcome His face,
Love was His guide and His code.
He knew how it felt to be cold and be lonely;
He lived a life that was lowly.
So He understands and can give us the love
That's needed to pull us through. He's calling
Chorus 2
"Run to Me, come to Me, when you feel alone,
If your future is unknown;
I'll love you as My own.
Run to Me, come to Me, into My open arms;
Yes, I'll be there to comfort you
And help you carry on."
Bridge
Reach out to Him and He'll show you how you can be happy wherever you are.
He'll go with you, be with you, lighten your load,
And you won't be alone; He cares for His own.
Chorus 3

I'll love you as My own.
Run to Me, come to Me, into My open arms;
Oh, I'll be there to comfort you,
[With you when you feel alone,]
I'll stand by you when hope is gone,
And help you carry on.
I'll stand by you when hope is gone,
And help you carry on.
