THE PRODIGAL RETURNED




Behold, how pleasant ‘tis to see
A prodigal return,
With broken heart and bended knee,
His past transgressions mourn.


Here the exalted Saviour views
The fruit of all his toils;
The Spirit owns the work as his,
And God the Father smiles.


Angels and saints their voices raise
To the great Three in One,
And celebrate in songs of praise,
The wonders grace has done.


Through heaven and earth the triumphs spread,
And echo all around;
‘The soul’s alive that once was dead,
Behold, the lost is found!’
