1. Like a wayward child I wandered
From my Father’s house away,
But I hear His voice entreating,
And I’m coming home today.

Refrain
Coming, coming home,
Coming, coming home,
For I can no longer roam;
I am sad and broken hearted,
And I’m coming, coming home!

2. I have wandered in the darkness,
And my path was lone and drear,
But my Father did not leave me,
He was watching ever near. [Refrain]

3. O the rapture that awaits me
When I reach my Father’s door!
Once within its blest enclosure,
I am safe forevermore. [Refrain]

4. I will ask Him to forgive me
For the wrong that I have done,
To receive, accept and bless me,
Through His well belovèd Son. [Refrain]
