Come home, dear sinner, while the light
Is beaming on your way,
The door stands open wide for you,
Return while yet you may.


Come home, come home,
Dear child, come home,
Your Father bids you come;
Come home, come home,
Just now come home,
O weary wanderer, come.

Come home, dear sinner; by the cross
The Savior waits for you;
He’ll cleanse away your earthly dross,
And make you happy, too.


Come home, dear sinner, while you feel
The Spirit move your heart;
While at the mercy seat you kneel,
With every idol part.


Come home, dear sinner, while you may,
The Church is calling, too;
With earnest faith begin to pray,
And Heav’n will welcome you.


Come home, dear sinner, Jesus’ blood
Can wash out every stain;
Plunge now into the crimson flood
Of Him who once was slain.
