Tho’ you’ve wandered far from Father’s house,
Tho’ your lonely heart should ache
over shattered hopes and broken dreams,
And things you can’t forsake;
There is One who still longs to forgive,
Makes no diff’rence where you’ve roamed;
He still loves you,
Come on home.
Come on home, my wand’ring child
the daylight hours are past;
Though His heart longs to forgive you,
He cannot until you ask;
Come on home, just leave your pride
and guilt outside the door;
Father loves you, and He’s waiting, Come on Home.
Tho’ you know that you have failed his trust,
Tho’ your heart is full of shame,
Tho’ you know you’ve broken Father’s heart,
Brought reproach upon His Name;
If you only knew how much He loves,
Even though you’ve been so wrong;
You’d not wait another moment-you’d come home.
