If you are sad and weary and burdened down with care,
And feel that you have wandered from the right;
Tho’ all your life seems dreary,
Your load seems hard to bear,
Just tell Him you are coming home tonight.

Refrain

Just tell Him you are coming home tonight,
Just tell Him you are coming home tonight;
If, weary and distressed,
You long for peace and rest,
Just tell Him you are coming home tonight.

The Savior loves you dearly, and longs your soul to win,
His precious love would make your burden light;
Heed now His tender pleading,
And turn away from sin,
Just tell Him you are coming home tonight.

Refrain

He offers you forgiveness, and peace, and joy, and rest,
He wants to make your pathway fair and bright;
His loving arms are open
To fold you to His breast,
Oh, tell Him you are coming home tonight.

Refrain
