Representative Text

1 The One that was nailed to the cross for me,
In mercy and love has answered my plea,
And still He is calling to souls that roam,
Inviting them all to His heavenly home.

The nail-piercèd hands of my Savior
Will lead us in light and in love;
By night and by day, He points out the way,
To the heavenly home above.

2 O now thru a vision of tears I see
The One who once suffered anguish for me;
His hand is outstretched from the vaulted dome
To welcome His prodigal children back home. [Refrain]

3 How often I think of that nail-scarred hand,
Still pointing the way to Heaven’s homeland;
And gladly I call unto all who roam,
Inviting a start for the heavenly home. [Refrain]
