Shaun Groves--"Welcome Home"

One of my favorite songs from around the time I got saved. It reminded me a lot of the man I had given up being. (Actually, it still reminds me of the man I used to be).



Take me, make me
All You want me to be
That's all I'm asking, all I'm asking

Welcome to this heart of mine
I've buried under prideful vines
Grown to hide the mess I've made
Inside of me, come decorate, Lord
Open up the creaking door
And walk upon the dusty floor
Scrape away the guilty stains
Until no sin or shame remain
Spread Your love upon the walls
And occupy the empty halls
Until the man I am has faded
No more doors are barricaded

Chorus:
Come inside this
Heart of mine it's
Not my own
Make it home
Come and take this
Heart and make it
All your own
Welcome home

Take a seat, pull up a chair
Forgive me for the disrepair
And the souvenirs from floor to ceiling
Gathered on my search for meaning
Every closet's filled with clutter
Messes yet to be discovered
I'm overwhelmed, I understand
I can't make this place all that You can

I took the space that You placed in me
Redecorated in shades of greed
And I made sure every door stayed locked
Every window blocked, and still you knocked

Come inside this
Heart of mine it's
Not my own
Come and take this
Heart and make it
All your own
Welcome home
Welcome home

Come inside this
Heart of mine it's
Not my own
Make it home
Make it home
Come and take this
Heart and make it
All your own
Welcome Welcome Welcome
Home

Take me, make me
All You want me to be
That's all I'm asking, all I'm asking
