Representative Text

1 Come home, poor sinner;
Why longer roam,
Thy Savior’s calling,
“Come home, come home!”

Jesus is pleading;
He’s interceding;
Yes, pleading, pleading
For thee to come;
Come home, poor sinner,
Come home, come home.

2 He died to save you
On Calvary;
Behold what suff’ring!
’Twas all for thee. [Refrain]

3 Oh, come to Jesus,
Do not delay;
Come, and He’ll save you;
Come while you may. [Refrain]

4 Oh, come to Jesus;
He’s waiting still
With His salvation,
Thy soul to fill. [Refrain]

5 Oh, come to Jesus;
How can you stay,
He’s pleading, pleading;
Come, come today. [Refrain]
