Representative Text

1 Long the path of sin I’ve trod,
Long I’ve wandered from my God,
On the desert far from home,
I have wandered all alone,
All alone, all alone,
I have wandered all alone.

2 While I wander day by day,
Sins beset me on my way,
Waves of sorrow round me roll,
Tempests gather o’er my soul,
O’er my soul, o’er my soul,
Tempests gather o’er my soul.

3 I will seek my Father’s face,
Plead His love and trust His grace,
I will turn, nor longer roam,
Jesus sweetly calls me home,
Calls me home, calls me home,
Jesus sweetly calls me home.

4 To His loving arms I’ll fly,
In His care I cannot die;
Saviour Thou who loves me best,
On Thy bosom let me rest,
Let me rest, let me rest,
On Thy bosom let me rest.

5 Take me Saviour, for thine own
Thou canst have, and Thou alone,
From my idols now I flee,
I resign them all for Thee,
All for Thee, all for Thee,
I resign them all for Thee.
