Representative Text

1 Rejoice, rejoice with angels bright,
The wand’rers are coming home,
From darkness turning to the light,
The wand’rers are coming home.

Refrain:
Coming home! coming home!
The wand’rers are coming home;
Rejoice, rejoice with angels bright,
The wand’rers are coming home.

2 Won by the Father’s boundless love,
The wand’rers are coming home,
The riches of His grace to prove,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]

3 From thorny paths their feet have pressed,
The wand’rers are coming home,
To share salvation’s peace and rest,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]

4 From sin’s defilement purified,
The wand’rers are coming home,
Cleansed by the blood of Him who died,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]
