Hymn/Song Information

I know that Jesus ever lives




I know that Jesus ever lives,
And has prepared a place for me:
And crowns of victory He gives
To those who would His children be.

Then ask me not to linger long
Amid the gay
and thoughtless throng;
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”



I’m trusting Jesus Christ for all,
I know His blood
now speaks for me;
I’m list’ning for the welcome call,
To say: “The Master waiteth thee!”

Then ask me not to linger long
Amid the gay
and thoughtless throng;
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”



I’m now enraptured
with the thought,—
I stand and wonder at His love—
That He from heav’n
to earth was brought
To die, that I might live above.

Then ask me not to linger long
Amid the gay
and thoughtless throng;
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”



I know that Jesus soon will come;
I know the time will not be long,
Till I shall reach my heav’nly home,
And join the everlasting song.

Then ask me not to linger long
Amid the gay
and thoughtless throng;
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”
For I am only waiting here
To hear the summons:
“Child, come home!”
