Lord, I’m Coming Home (Hymn)

Lord, I’m Coming Home
William Kirkpatrick (1892)

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.

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

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

Refrain

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

My only hope, my only plea,
Now I’m coming home;
That Jesus died, and died for me.
Lord, I’m coming home.

Refrain

I need His cleansing blood, I know,
Now I’m coming home;
O wash me whiter than the snow,
Lord, I’m coming home.

Refrain

In my opinion, this is the best hymn that there is on the subject of returning to the Lord from sin.  This song is the story of the Prodigal son in Luke.  It is the story of many other prodigal sons throughout history the world over.  It might even be our story.  Wherever we find ourselves today, we can always come home to the Lord.  What a wonderful truth.
