1 Far from Thy goodness I’ve wandered away,
Father, I’m coming home;
Turning from Satan and evil today,
Father, I’m coming home.

Father, I’m coming home,
Father, I’m coming home;
O take me in, forgive all my sin,
Father, I’m coming home.

2 Sin has brought sorrow and pain to my life,
Father, I’m coming home;
Pardon my sinning, O, banish all strife,
Father, I’m coming home. [Refrain]

3 Out from the darkness in which I was lost,
Father, I’m coming home;
Turning from sin at whatever the cost,
Father, I’m coming home. [Refrain]

4 Sin sick and helpless I’ve nothing to bring,
Father, I’m coming home;
Giving up gladly my heart now doth sing
Father, I’m coming home. [Refrain]
