Return to Me

(parody of "Si Volvieras a Mi" by Josh Groban)
New lyrics by Mike Fischer

The Story: one of the teens in my youth group introduced me to the music of Josh Groban, and I kind of liked his stuff, so of course I had to write at least one parody of it. The original title means "If you return to me" in Spanish, and is a love song. This version is a song about the ultimate love.


Child of the human race, will you repent of all
Wrong that you've ever done? Answer your Father's call?
Christ bled and died just to pay for your sin,
Bought your redemption and then
After three days He arose up again.
Now My Spirit is calling all men.

Chorus:
If you return now to Me, I will have mercy, I will offer you a pardon.
If you'll return now to Me, don't let your heart become too cold, don't let it harden.
If you go your way, there's a price you can't pay.

How will you seek My face, searching out on your own,
Scorning the Word I sent to you, when it is clear and tried and true? You're going to end alone.
Come on your knees, I'll come into your heart.
No more will we be apart.
Trust in the work and the worth of the Son,
not in all the good things you have done.

Chorus:
If you return now to Me, I will have mercy, I will offer you a pardon.
If you'll return now to Me, don't let your heart become too cold, don't let it harden.
If you go your way, there's a price you can't pay.

And for your soul, there is a fate, and it certainly awaits
If you don't change your road.
See, I knock at the door. Please do not ignore.
The choice, it now is yours.

Chorus:
Ahhh! If you return to me as to a loving Father.
If you return now to Me, you will have peace with your God.
If you go your way, there's a price you can't pay.
