Hurry Home ~ Jason Michael Carroll (Lyrics)

He's been sitting by the phone since she left
But it's time for work and he just can't be late
So he grabs his old guitar
And he plays a couple bars on the machine
And then he softly sings

It doesn't matter what you've done, I still love you
It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still come home
And honey if it's you, we've got a lot of making up to do
And I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home

Well the message light was blinking when he got back
It was an old friend calling cause he just heard the news
He says Man I hope you find her
If I see her I'll remind her that her dad is worried
And want her to know [Chorus]

Well the days dragged by without a word from her
And it looked like she might not be coming back
People said man don't you think it's time to take that old message off
He said no, you never know when she might call

She was just outside a bar in New York City
Her so-called friends had left her all alone
She was scared he wouldn't want her
But she dialed up that old number and let it ring
And then she heard him sing [Chorus]

He walked in just in time to hear her say
Dad, I'm on my way

Sainthood Prayer (For Trials at Work & Home)

We pray for strength & perseverance
In our work place and at home
That we are able to love
As Christ would have loved,
No matter how difficult the situation may be.
Help us to remember that
Christ’s yoke is easy and his burden, light;
And only in understanding
That the yoke is Christ’s love for man
That we will be able to persevere in strength
But in the same breath
We pray that you take this cup from us;
Yet not our will, but yours be done.
