NOW Founded


Once Upon a Time there lived a little boy

who lived with his father and younger brother.

Once Upon a Time there lived a little boy

who became a man

who wanted his independence...NOW

Once Upon a Time there lived a man

who went to his father

and demanded his inheritance...NOW.

Once Upon a Time there lived a Father

who gave his son what he asked for~

all of it...NOW.

Once Upon a Time there lived a man

who left home

with his inheritance

skipping down the road

into his next chapter...NOW.

Once Upon a Time there lived a man

who squandered all of his inheritance.

Once Upon a Time there NOW lived

a man

who was feeding pigs...NOW.

Once Upon a Time there lived a man

who didn't like feeding pigs

who remembered what life was like

living with his father and older brother.

Once Upon a Time there lived a man

who was NOW humbled and traveled

down the road to home.

Once Upon a Time there lived a Father

Who NOW saw His son

walking down the road.

Once Upon a Time there lived a Father

who was filled with compassion

the moment He saw his son

walking towards home.

Once Upon a Time there lived a Father

Who ran down the road

threw his arms around him and kissed him.*

Once Upon a Time there lived a son

who said,

Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.

I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’*

But

Once Upon a Time there lived a Father

Who said to His servants,

Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him.

Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet.

Bring the fattened calf and kill it.

Let’s have a feast and celebrate. (*Luke 15)

Because

Once Upon a Time there lived a son

who was lost

but NOW was found.

because

Once Upon a Time there is a

Father~

Who is compassionate

Who is forgiving

Who is full of mercy and grace...

NOW

Who says,

Come out of hiding _________________, (PUT your name)

You're safe here with me

There's no need to cover what I already see ______________,

You've got your reasons, but I hold your peace _______________,

You've been on lockdown and I hold the key Cause I loved before you, _________________ , knew what was love And I saw it all, still I chose the cross

And _________________ ,

You were the one that I was thinking of _______________ When I rose from the grave (lyrics from "Out of Hiding", listen & watch below)

NOW

PUT ME IN HIS STORY

of

Compassion

Forgiveness

Mercy & Grace

Because...

Once Upon a Time there lived me

who Once Upon a Time was lost

who Once Upon a Time was found

the moment I looked up

to the

Father

Who then

immediately came running to me

the moment He saw me

because

He is

Compassion

Forgiveness

Mercy & Grace...

Always was

Always is

Always will be

Now & Forever!

PUT ME IN HIS STORY

Once upon a time there lived ________________ . . .

who came

OUT OF HIDING...

For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.

So they began to celebrate.

LUKE 15:24
