Representative Text

1 We have wandered far away from our Father’s home,
In the dark and dreary paths of sin;
But we hear our Saviour’s voice calling us to come,
And at once a better life begin.

We are coming home,
We are coming home, coming home to-day;
We heard thy loving voice,
Blessed Saviour, and rejoice;
We are coming home to-day.

2 We are coming now by faith, by the Spirit led,
We are coming with our hearts to thee;
We are trusting in the blood that for us was shed,
And the Holy Spirit sets us free. [Refrain]

3 We have kindred gone before, to the heavenly home,
And they draw us by the chords of love;
They are calling us to-day, calling us to come
To the happy, happy home above. [Refrain]
