Representative Text

1 Coming home all weary, broken-hearted,
I have gladly left the path of wrong;
Oh, I long to join the happy chorus,
Where they’re singing sweet redemption’s song.

Refrain:
Coming home, coming home,
With the ransomed evermore to be,
Coming home, coming home,
Jesus, Savior, coming home to Thee.

2 Coming home to Father’s arms of mercy,
I am tired of sin’s deceptive way;
I will humbly bow and plead for pardon,
At His blessed feet I’ll weep and pray. [Refrain]

3 Coming home tonight to friends and loved ones,
For their prayers and tears have won my heart;
Long I’ve wandered on in sin and sorrow,
Jesus, save me now, ere hope depart. [Refrain]

4 Coming home to Father’s house repenting,
Coming heavy-laden, sick and sore,
And I know that if I come believing,
Angels wait to meet me at the door. [Refrain]
