1 Where art thou, wand’ring sinner?
What is thy portion tonight?
Bound in the fetters of Satan,
Oh, will you return to the light?

Are you coming? Are you coming?
Are you coming home tonight?

Dark is the kingdom you roam;
Sinner, there’s danger foreboding,
Oh, flee, for there’s safety at home. [Refrain]

3 No peace within thy bosom,
No lasting comfort you know;
Come, then, to love’s peaceful dwelling,
Where fountains of happiness flow. [Refrain]

4 Mercy is calling, sinner,
Jesus has suffered for thee;
He’ll bring you home to the Father,
Where there is a welcome so free. [Refrain]
