The Book of Ruth and Prodigal Son

Book of Ruth and the Prodigal Son

The Book of Ruth and the Prodigal Son

Have many similarities along the run

The Land of Moab of complete despair

Ruth and Naomi left the Wash Pot there

They came to a land of Bread and Praise

In Bethlehem they had good days

The Prodigal Son left a land so rich

Went away and lived out of a filthy ditch

He returned to his father’s place

Ashamed and beaten and a big disgrace

His father took him in with love and respect

Put gold on his finger.  He did not reject

The Prodigal Son and Naomi and Ruth

Came back to the fold enriched and with couth

They got their whipping far away

Came back to the Father for the rest of their day

That is the story of forgiveness and care

The Good News of the Bible for us to share

  1. I recently wrote a song about the Prodigal Son. This is my testimony of God’s amazing grace in my life. If you have a sec here it is. Thanks for listening
