1 The heavenly Father calls for thee,
O wayward, sinful child,
And asks thee in his gracious Word
To come,—be ye reconciled.
He is calling thee, calling thee,
Home to a Father’s love;
He is calling thee to a “title clear,”
To a mansion built above.
2 His voice is speaking to thy soul;
The Spirit strives within;
He bids thee turn to him this hour;
He’ll pardon all thy sin. [Refrain]
3 O wondrous love that calls us home!
O height and depth of grace!
O sweet, constraining power that draws
Our hearts to seek his face!
4 The blessed home-light shines beyond,
And open is the way;
‘Tis sprinkled with the Saviour’s blood:
Come, enter it today. [Refrain]
