Representative Text

1 Have you wandered far from Jesus,
Have you often spurned His love?
Still in patience He is pleading
At the Father’s throne above;
He will pardon your transgressions
And will lead you into light,
He is waiting to receive you:
Are you coming home tonight?

Refrain:
Are you coming home tonight?
Are you coming home tonight?
Are you coming home tonight?
He has called you oft before,
He has opened wide the door:
Are you coming home tonight?

2 Are you weary of the burden
And the sin which He must see?
Are you longing for the pardon
Of the Christ of Galilee?
See! He’s waiting at the threshold
And He’s calling you to come,
In His loving arms He’ll fold you
And He’ll lead you safely home. [Refrain]

3 Are you burdened with the struggles
Of a sinful heart today?
Are you fainting ‘neath the failures
Strewn along the backward way?
Bring it all in deep contrition,
Lay it at the master’s feet,
He will give you peace and pardon,
He will make your joy complete. [Refrain]
