Representative Text

1 Tired of wasting precious days,
I'm returning, ne'er to roam;
Weary of my sinful ways,
Savior, I am coming home.

Chorus:
Jesus, I have gone astray,
Now I seek Thy righteous way;
I cannot such love betray-
so I am coming home today.

2 Grieving over all my guilt,
Now I look to Calvary,
Where Thy precious blood was spilt,-
I am coming home to Thee. [Chorus]

3 Oh the joy that fills my soul,
Now that grace hath made me free;
Yielding to Thy full control,
I am coming, Lord, to Thee. [Chorus]

4 Oh, the misery and tears
As I've traveled Satan's way;
Tho' I've wandered many years,
I am coming home today. [Chorus]
