1 Angels are waiting to bear the news
Up to the courts above,
Of some poor wand’rer now coming home,
Seeking a Father's love.

Refrain:
There will be joy in heav’n,
There will be joy above,
Over the wand’rer returning home,
Seeking a Father's love.

2 Jesus is ready, oh, heed His call,
“Come, weary ones, and rest.”
Nothing is wanting; there's room for all,
Now be forever blest. [Refrain]

3 Oh, what an anthem will angels sing!
How throb their hearts with love!
E’en now they’re waiting, and on the wing,
Who’ll send the news above? [Refrain]
