When God Ran

I absolutely loved the original Benny Hester song “When God Ran” when I was growing up.  Here is a cover by Phillips, Craig and Dean.  Enjoy.

Almighty God, The Great I Am
Immovable Rock, Omnipotent powerful

Awesome Lord, Victorious Warrior
Commanding King of Kings, Mighty Conqueror

And the only time
The only time I ever saw Him run

Was when He ran to me
Took me in His arms, held my head to His chest
Said “My son’s come home again”
Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in His voice
He said “Son, do you know I still love you?”

It caught me by surprise when God ran

The day I left home
I knew I’d broken His heart
I wondered then
If things could ever be the same

Then one night
I remembered His love for me
And down that dusty road
Ahead I could see

It’s the only time
The only time I ever saw Him run

When He ran to me
Took me in His arms, held my head to His chest
Said “My son’s come home again”
Lifted my face, wiped the tears from my eyes
With forgiveness in His voice
He said “Son, do you know I still love you?”

It caught me by surprise
It brought me to my knees
When God ran

I saw Him run to me
And then I ran to Him

Holy One, Righteous Judge
He turned my way
Now I know He’s been waiting
For this day

  1. It might not matter …in today’s Christianity …but Phillips , Dean and Craig are Oneness Pentecostal heretics ( they deny the Trinity ) ..
    i don’t think that I can call them ” brothers in Christ” …. 🙂
