I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Luke 15:18
Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you.
I was so lonely, so very lonely,
When I from my Savior had wandered away;
Now I am happy, so very happy,
Since I to my Savior have come home to stay.
I’m glad I came home, oh, so glad I came home,
From Jesus my Savior I’ll nevermore roam;
No more am I starving, weary or lone,
Since Jesus has found me, I’m glad I came home.
I was so hungry, so very hungry,
When out in the desert I wandered alone;
Since I’m in Canaan, living in Canaan,
I’ve plenty of bread, oh, I’m glad I came home.
I was so weary, so very weary,
When tired of my wand’ring I lay down to die;
Jesus came near me, so very near me,
When in my distress unto Him I did cry.
I was in darkness, walking in darkness,
When blinded by sin I had stumbled along;
Now I’m in sunlight, walking in sunlight,
My sight is restored, oh, I’m glad I came home.
