Representative Text

1 Far from my home I’ve wandered
Over the paths of sin;
Treasures of life I’ve squandered,
No one will take me in.
God’s voice is calling:
“Come, O child of love”;
He waits to receive you
Into His home above.

All, all is forgiven,
Jesus has made you whole;
Joy, joy is in heaven
Over a ransom’d soul!

2 Strong are the bonds that hold me,
No one can set me free;
Shadows of night enfold me;
Father, I come to Thee!
God’s voice is calling:
“Come, no longer roam”;
Light stream o’er your pathway
Out from the door of home! [Refrain]

3 Out of my depth of weakness,
Out of my want and woe,
Father, to Thee in meekness
I will arise and go!
God’s voice is calling:
“Welcome, child of mine!
Come, enter thy kingdom;
All that I have is thine!” [Refrain]
