Representative Text

1 Far in the desert wild,
Walking a dreary way;
Suff’ring and sin-defiled,
Going astray.

Pray for the wanderer,
Pray for the wanderer,
Pray for the wanderer,
Going astray.

2 Tenderly bid them come
Back from sin’s wilderness;
Come to our father’s home
Sav’d by His grace. [Refrain]

3 Plead now at mercy’s gate
For each poor wand’ring one;
Soon it will be too late,
Life will be gone. [Refrain]

4 Pray, and with love entreat
All who by sin are press’d;
Bid them at Jesus’ feet
Find endless rest. [Refrain]
