about

A beautiful song that narrates one of the favorite love stories in the Bible – the unconditional love of a father for his son, even when he has turned his back on him and all he stands for.

lyrics

Hasn't everyone,
Been a Prodigal Son
Hasn't everyone,
Been a Prodigal Son

There was a man who had two sons, one wanted to leave
He said he'd take his inheritance, (G)and do as he pleased
The younger son got it (G)all together and journeyed away
To waste his life in riotous living
Playing foolish games

When he had spent all, there came a famine in the land
He began to be in want, with nothing left in his hands
He went to work for a local farmer, feeding the swine
Living on the husks of the world
And no longer drinking wine

[Repeat Chorus]

When he came to himself he said,
I'm going back home
My father's servants have enough to eat
And I'm dying all alone
I'll arise and go to my father, and say unto him
Father I have sinned against heaven, please take me in

[Repeat Chorus]

His father saw him, and rejoiced inside
Called his servants to prepare a feast
Bring out the new wine
Let us sing, let us be merry, he's now safe and sound
My son was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found
Let us sing, let us be merry, he's now safe and sound
My son was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]
