Come Home Lyrics
List! sinner, the voice of thy Savior is heard,
Attend and reject not His plea;
He asks for thy heart, now believe on His word,
He offers sweet pardon to thee.
Come home, come home,
Come, trust in a Savior's love;
Come home, weary one, come home,
Come home to that land above.
Why linger in darkness and danger so long?
The day of salvation is near;
Come, all ye that labor, His love is so strong,
That all His sweet promise may share.
Full long has the burden of sin weighed thee down,
O, hasten to Calvary's side;
See, there on the cross He has purchased thy crown,
A ransom for sinners has died.
Despised and rejected, at length He may leave,
His Spirit no longer may strive;
His mercy and pardon, oh, wilt thou receive?
'Twill peace to thy soul quickly give.
