I had wan­dered far from Je­sus,
On the mount­ains, sad and lone,
But I heard the Spir­it call­ing:
Savior, now I’m com­ing home.


Savior, I am com­ing home;
Full of sin and wound­ed sore,
Let me lean upon Thy bo­som,
I will leave Thee ne­ver­more.

I am poor, and weak, and sin­ful;
Earthly trea­sures I have none,
But I know Thou wilt re­ceive me,
Savior, I am com­ing home.


All my guilt I come con­fess­ing,
All my griefs to Thee make known;
Thou hast pur­chased my re­demp­tion,
Savior, I am com­ing home.


Thou hast died for me, my Sav­ior,
For my sin Thou didst atone.
Wondrous thought: O love so bound­less!
Savior, I am com­ing home.


When this mor­tal life is ov­er,
When the toils of earth are done,
Let me rest with Thee, my Sav­ior,
In that blest, eter­nal home.
