268. Lord, I'm Coming Home

1 I’ve wandered far away from God -
Now I’m coming home;
The paths of sin too long I’ve trod -
Lord, I’m coming home.

Coming home, coming home,
Nevermore to roam'
Open wide Thine arms of love -
Lord, I’m coming home.

2 I’ve wasted many precious years -
Now I’m coming home;
I now repent with bitter tears -
Lord, I’m coming home. [Chorus]

3 I’m tired of sin and straying, Lord -
Now I’m coming home;
I’ll trust Thy love, believe Thy word -
Lord, I’m coming home. [Chorus]

4 My soul is sick, my heart is sore -
Now I’m coming home;
My strength renew, my hope restore -
Lord, I’m coming home. [Chorus]
