We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Coming home tonight

Though thoughtlessly I've broken the law

Author: A. Byron Condo
Tune: [Tho' thoughtlessly I've broken the law]
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Tho' thoughtlessly I've broken the law,
And have stray'd from the path of right,
Though I am now degraded in sin,
I am coming, coming home to-night.

I will arise and go to Jesus,
And confess I've sinned in his sight;
I will arise and go to Jesus;
I am coming, coming home to-night.

2. My soul is famishing for the truth,
And my heart sighs for heavenly light,
Tho' long I've lived in shame and disgrace,
I am coming, coming home to-night.

3. Oh, I would wash in that crimson flood,
From my sins I would take my flight;
Lord, I would be made holy and pure,
I am coming, coming home tonight.

4. Lord, I would dwell with those gone before,
There to rest where no sin can blight;
There I may wear a robe and a crown,
I am coming, coming home to-night.
