Full Text

1 No home! no home! O hapless one,
Lift up thine eyes and see;
The door of hope is open wide,
The bread of life is free.

O quickly haste, and linger not,
Thy lamp may cease to burn;
Obey the warning voice of him
Who bids thee now return.

2 No home! no home! and yet that voice
Has called thee o’er and o’er;
His Spirit pleaded with thy soul
To give its wand’ring o’er. [Refrain]

3 No home! no home! how could’st thou thus
Amidst the desert roam,
When beckoning angels from the sky
In pity called, come home. [Refrain]

4 No home! ah, yes, ’tis thine at last,
Thine eyes its portals see;
Thy Father’s love receives, forgives,
And joyful welcomes thee. [Refrain]
