Representative Text

1 Once the downward path of sin I trod,
Day by day I farther strayed from God;
But a Saviour’s love my steps did stay,
Now I’m going home in the good old way.

Refrain:
I am going home in the good old way;
I am going home in the good old way;
Dear sinner, come and go I pray,
For I’m going home in the good old way.

2 Oh, it was a joyous day for me,
When He touch’d my eyes and made me see;
When He taught me how to live and pray,
Now I’m going home in the good old way. [Refrain]

3 I could never find the path alone,
But the Lord my hand takes in His own;
With His grace upholding day by day,
I am going home in the good old way. [Refrain]

4 I am going home, yes, this I know,
Tho’ no worthiness have I to show,
‘Tis by Jesus’ blood I’m saved today,
And I’m going home in the good old way. [Refrain]

5 I am going home where loved ones wait,
Soon I’ll enter thro’ the pearly gate;
With my Lord Divine to ever stay,
I am going home in the good old way. [Refrain]
