There was a time when I believed,
and rested in His care;
But time would push me far away, to walk in worldly flare.
I left the fold so long ago, and drifted far, far away;
I lived the way I wanted to live, and could not hear Him say:
"Come home, My child, come
home, My child,
Oh, please don't turn away.
Come home, My child, come home, My child,
before it is too late."
I'm tired of sin and wandering,
so very far from home;
I want the joy I had back when I did not walk alone.
The time has come for me to go, way back to where I belong;
For I have heard His Spirit call, "Come home, My child, come home."
