Full Text

1 Coming home thro’ the twilight shadows gray,
And the toil and the stress of the busy day,
Now has pass’d from the memory away—
Coming home, coming home at twilight.

Refrain:
So shall the Christian’s passing be,
Just coming home to rest;
Just coming home at twilight
To those whom we love the best.

2 Then the load that today so heavy seems,
Will be dropp’d from our life like forgotten dreams,
As from heavenly portals love-light gleams,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]

3 Coming home with our Saviour to abide,
Where all tears by the Father’s hand are dried;
When at last we’ll be wholly satisfied,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]

4 Coming home, all the doubt and fearing o’er,
Where the lov’d ones await who had gone before
Free from sorrow and pain forevermore,
Coming home, coming home at twilight. [Refrain]
