Father, you are never really far away.
It is we that have gone astray.
You come to look for us.
You do it without any fuss.
We hide from the light.
We prefer darkness and night.
But you are still never really far away.
You reach out to us each and every day.
Selfishly we hide away from you.
Yet Father, you make all things new.
Father you are never really far away,
You illuminate the world with a golden ray
