On the Way, I Lost it, I Lost it...

"I have come to seek and save that which was lost..."
Matthew 18:11

A tiskit a taskit.
A green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I lost it.  
I lost it. 
I lost it…

I see a little girl running.
The street lights are on – it’s time to come home. 
It’s time for dinner. 
Daddy’s home.
Something smells good. 
It’s so cold outside.
Why isn’t it warm inside?
I am so hungry…

On the way, 
I lost it… 
I lost it…

Why did I run into this place, thinking it was home?
Why did I call him daddy?
I try to turn and run, but it’s too late.
I am trapped and it is all my fault… 
I never should have expected to find love here. 
I don’t know where it’s hiding, but, I can’t find it here…

On the way,
I lost it. 
I lost it…

It’s so dark. 
So cold. 
So hateful.  So killing.
I ran to him a little girl.
But, I have never seen her again...

On the way, 
I lost her 
I lost her...

Search for me O' God, and find me.  
For I am lost in the depth of my heart…
Shelter me from the harm of my pain and the fury of my anger.
Breathe on me Breath of God and fill me with new life.
Wash away the filthiness that sticks to me like tar.
Be to me the love I lost and never found.

Are You the One who looked for me?
I hid behind the door and watched You search for me.
I so hoped You would find me, hiding, wanting to be found.

You never gave up.
You called my name. 
You spied me watching You in the dark, afraid to answer. 

You ran to me.
You ran to me. 
How can it be that You wanted me? 
That You ran to me?

I once was lost
And now I’m found…
Lord, My Safe, Safe Place,
Keep me in the Shelter of Your love
