1. Are you coming home, ye wand’rers,
Whom Jesus died to win,
All footsore, lame and weary,
Your garments stained with sin;
Will you seek the blood of Jesus
To wash your garments white;
Will you trust His precious promise,
Are you coming home tonight?

Refrain
Are you coming home tonight,
Are you coming home tonight,
Are you coming home to Jesus,
Out of darkness into light?
Are you coming home tonight,
Are you coming home tonight,
To your loving, heav’nly Father,
Are you coming home tonight?

2. Are you coming home, ye lost ones?
Behold your Lord doth wait;
Come, then no longer linger,
Come ere it be too late;
Will you come and let Him save you,
O trust His love and might;
Will you come while He is calling,
Are you coming home tonight? [Refrain]

3. Are you coming home, ye guilty,
Who bear the load of sin;
Outside you’ve long been standing,
Come now and venture in;
Will you heed the Savior’s promise,
And dare to trust Him quite;
Come unto Me, saith Jesus,
Are you coming home tonight? [Refrain]

Notes

Are you coming home, ye wanderers? [Invitation.] In his My Life and Sacred Songs, 1906, p. 64, Mr. Sankey says:—
"The original of this hymn was written by a young lady in Scotland, who signed herself "C. C." Falling into Mr. McGranahan's hands, he arranged the poem somewhat differently, and set the words to music."
Both words and music are No. 397 in Sacred Songs and Solos, 1881. The words are ascribed to "A. N."

--John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)
