I Belong

I carry the blood of my enemies

It runs deep through my veins

I carry the sin of my fathers

The darkness there fills me with shame


 My cries to the Lord have been many

To take this torment away

It’s then that He thunders a whisper

To quiet my anxious refrain


For I carry the blood of the Father

He’s not made of flesh or bone

He chose me to join in His family 

A kingdom of treasures untold


He calls me from penance to presence 

Where my spirit can rest and be known

He heals all my broken places

I am seen

I finally belong
