Wednesday Riff: Embracing

When Isaac sees his brother Jacob
He runs and throws his arms around him
Though the two have fallen out
He runs and throws his arms around him
He digs deep and finds forgiveness
He runs and throws his arms around him
When the father sees his son limping home
He runs and throws his arms around him
He digs deep and finds forgiveness
He runs and throws his arms around him
To protect him from the stones of others
He runs and throws his arms around him
To absorb any insults hurled at his child
He runs and throws his arms around him
To welcome him home, and say I love you
He runs and throws his arms around him
Like a mother hen, shielding her chicks from harm
He runs and throws his arms around him
It’s a story that plays out every day
He runs and throws his arms around us
He digs deep and finds forgiveness
He runs and throws his arms around us

As we limp home day after day
He runs and throws his arms around us
