09. Thousand Miles

Back Home
by Caedmon's Call



 

I have stolen, Lord, let me give
I have left Your house a fugitive
I have wandered in my own way
Squandered everything You gave
But my dying heart You saved and let me live

I have cursed the air and clenched my fists
I have hungered for Your righteousness
I have tried to walk the line
I drew between Your heart and mine
But You forgive me every time the mark is missed

So take my broken offering and make it whole
And set my feet upon the road that leads me home
Let me walk as one fixed upon the goal
Even though I've got a thousand miles to go

I have sought Your grace in my defense
I have plundered Your magnificence
Until my journey is complete
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
That I might sow what I have reaped
From Your great love

As I struggle for Your hand
You use me in ways I can't understand
You take this sinful man and renew me
Working through me

words and music by Aaron Senseman

Behind the Song:
"“Thousand Miles” is an attempt to describe the expectancy and interference experienced in Christian life. Knowing that God is actively perfecting and conforming us into the image of Christ is a profoundly hopeful thought, but when our desperate sinfulness is confronted by the fathomless grace of our ever-faithful God, our hearts and minds cannot reconcile His ability to use us to carry out His good and perfect will in spite of our malignity. So, we press on, offering what we can but trusting ultimately in His promise of grace alone to make any good of what we are able to do this side of Glory." - Aaron Senseman
