Come back to the homepath

Representative Text

1 Come back to the home-path, O child of His care,
The world is deceiving and full of despair;
But Jesus will help you each burden to bear,
Come back to the home-path today.

Refrain:
Come back to the home-path today,
Come back to the home-path today,
Though out in the wild, you are still His dear child;
Come back to the home-path today.

2 Come back to the home-path, its beauty behold,
Believe on His promise so often retold;
True happiness only is found in His fold,
Come back to the home-path today. [Refrain]

3 Come back to the home-path, and walk by His side,
His grace will sustain you whatever betide;
And under His wings you may safely abide,
Come back to the home-path today. [Refrain]

4 Come back to the home-path, the call is to you,
His love is now pleading, the message is true;
What Jesus has promised, He surely will do,
Come back to the home-path today. [Refrain]
