Representative Text

1 We wandered from Thy fold,
So safe, so warm;
We shivered in the cold,
The pelting storm.

O take us, take us home.
Dear Savior, take us home;
Too long, too long we’ve wandered,
Dear Savior, take us home.

2 All weary, worn and sore,
And sad—so sad—
We linger at Thy door;
O make us glad. [Refrain]

3 Now keep us by Thy side,
No more to stray;
Be Thou our friend and guide
Along life’s way. [Refrain]
