1 Though I wandered far from Jesus
In the paths of sin,
Yet I heard him gently calling:
Wanderer, come in.
Yes, he gave me peace and pardon,
Joy without alloy.
2 Though my burden pressed me sorely
And my courage failed,
Christ released me, and his goodness
O’er my sin prevailed.
3 Now I live for Christ my Saviour,
Live to do his will;
Though the path be dark and thorny,
I shall conquer still.
