Representative Text

1 I had wandered far from Jesus,
On the mountains, sad and lone,
But I heard the Spirit calling:
Savior, now I’m coming home.

Savior, I am coming home;
Full of sin and wounded sore,
Let me lean upon Thy bosom,
I will leave Thee nevermore.

2 I am poor, and weak, and sinful;
Earthly treasures I have none,
But I know Thou wilt receive me,
Savior, I am coming home. [Refrain]

3 All my guilt I come confessing,
All my griefs to Thee make known;
Thou hast purchased my redemption,
Savior, I am coming home. [Refrain]

4 Thou hast died for me, my Savior,
For my sin Thou didst atone.
Wondrous thought: O love so boundless!
Savior, I am coming home. [Refrain]

5 When this mortal life is over,
When the toils of earth are done,
Let me rest with Thee, my Savior,
In that blest, eternal home. [Refrain]
