18. 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. [Refrain]

3 I've tired of sin and straying, Lord
Now I'm coming home;
I'll trust Thy love, believe Thy word
Lord, I'm coming home. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
