Full Text

1 Oh, hear the Saviour gently say:
Come unto me, I am the way;
No more in sin and folly roam,
O, wanderer, come home, come home.

Come in your childhood, come, O come,
Come in your childhood, come, O come,
O hear the tender Shepherd’s voice,
Calling the wanderer home.

2 With tender love behold he stands,
Showing to us his bleeding hands,
And says, no longer from me rove,
But come to me, behold my love. [Refrain]

3 My love embraces all mankind,
Whoever comes will pardon find,
I’ll wash, and purge and purify,
And fit you for a home on high. [Refrain]
