Long have I wandered afar from my Lord,
Now I am coming home;
Longing to be to His favor restored,
Now I am coming home.

Refrain

Yes, I am coming, dear Lord, I’m coming,
Just now I’m coming home;
Yes, I am coming, dear Lord, I’m coming,
Just now I’m coming home.

Tired of the world with its folly and sin,
Now I am coming home;
Knowing the Savior will welcome me in,
Now I am coming home.

Refrain

Knowing my Savior can give me His rest,
Now I am coming home;
Longing to anchor my soul on His breast,
Now I am coming home.

Refrain

Humbly I crave but a poor servant’s place,
Now I am coming home;
Only desiring to taste of His grace,
Now I am coming home.

Refrain

O, bless the Lord, my dear Savior I see,
Now I am coming home;
Waiting to welcome a sinner like me,
Now I am coming home.

Refrain
