1 Soul astray in darkness, bowed by sin and woe,
One still dearly loves you, tho’ you downward go;
Tenderly He calls you in the gath’ring gloom,
Hear Him sweetly pleading “Won't you come back home?”
Won’t you come to Jesus, won’t come back home?
Still He dearly loves you and is pleading, "Come;"
Grieve His heart no longer, cease from Him to roam,
All shall be forgiven, "Won't you come back home?"
2 Tho’ from Him you wander, under sin's control,
Ever He is yearning for your wayward soul;
Arms of love are open, why despairing roam
From the one that loves you, “Won't you come back home?”[Refrain]
3 Think how He has suffered just to prove His love,
Even now a mansion He prepares above;
Even while you wander on to endless doom;
Won’t you try to love Him? “Won't you come back home?” [Refrain]
4 Swift the day is speeding; night is coming on;
Turn, while Jesus calls you, hope will soon be gone;
In the path before you lies the yawning tomb;
Won’t you love the Savior? “Won't you come back home?” [Refrain]
