O God, you have deeply loved us
Choosing us from day one
You called and we said no

O God, you have fiercely protected us
Guiding us as we walked
You called and we ran off

O God, you have gently cradled us
Nourishing us as we healed
You called and we pushed away

O God, you have wrenchingly grieved us
Lamenting us as we defied
May we return and be restored
