1 The voice of the Saviour is calling today,
Oh, prodigal child come home,
Come back to thy Father, why longer delay?
Oh, prodigal child come home.

Refrain:
Come home, come home,
Oh, prodigal child come home,
There’s mercy and pardon in Jesus for thee,
Oh, prodigal child come home.

2 Oh, why will you wander in darkness and sin?
Oh, prodigal child come home,
Just come to the Saviour, He’ll welcome you in,
Oh, prodigal child come home. [Refrain]

3 Oh, come, while the Spirit is pleading with thee,
Oh, prodigal child come home,
Get under the blood and from sin be set free,
Oh, prodigal child come home. [Refrain]

4 There’s mercy and pardon for all who obey,
Oh, prodigal child come home,
Why will you in danger still longer delay?
Oh, prodigal child come home. [Refrain]
