Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

Full Text

1 We are coming home to Jesus,
We have heard His welcome voice;
We are trusting in His goodness,
In His mercy we rejoice.

We are coming home,
we are coming home,
We are coming from the darkness to the light;
We are coming home,
we are coming home,
We are coming home tonight.

2 We are coming home to Jesus,
For He died that we might live:
He is willing to receive us,
He is waiting to forgive. [Refrain]

3 We are coming home to Jesus,
By the cross our only way;
There He finished our redemption,
And we can no more delay. [Refrain]
