SS&S 463: AFFLICTIONS, THOUGH THEY SEEM SEVERE

SS&S 463: AFFLICTIONS, THOUGH THEY SEEM SEVERE

1. Afflictions, though they seem severe 

In mercy oft are sent;

They stopped the prodigal's career,

And caused him to repent.

 

"I'll not pine here for bread,

I'll not pine here for bread," he cries;

"Nor starve in foreign lands:

My father's house has large supplies,

And bounteous are his hands."

 

2. "What have I gained by sin," he said,

"But hunger, shame, and fear?

My father's house abounds in bread,

While I am starving here!"

 

3. "I'll go and tell him all I've done,

Fall down before his face;

Unworthy to be called his son,

I'll seek a servant's place."

 

4. His father saw him coming back;

He saw, he ran, he smiled,

And threw his arms around the neck

Of his rebellious child!

 

5. "O father, I have sinned-----forgive!"

“Enough!" the father said:

"Rejoice, my house; my son's alive,

For whom I mourned as dead!"

 

6. 'Tis thus the Lord His love reveals,

To call poor sinners home;

More than a father's love He feels,

And welcomes all that come.
