1 Our wilful hearts have gone astray;
Our feet have wandered far away;
O God, remember not the day
When we forsook Thy love.
2 O patient eyes that saw us go!
O careless hearts to grieve Thee so;
O feet how swift to leave, how slow
When we came back to love!
3 We followed far the wayward will;
Our eyes turned home from ev’ry hill;
They saw Thee waiting, watching still
When we looked back to love.
4 Forgive that we have turned aside;
Our weary hearts in Thee would hide;
What joy forever to abide
In Thee, and know Thy love!
