RETURN RETURN




Return, O wanderer, to thy home,
Thy Father calls for thee;
No longer now an exile roam,
In guilt and misery:
Return, return!


Too long the loathsome fields of sin
Thy fruitless toil have known:
No wholesome bread! no voice of kin!
No home to call thine own!
Return, return!


Thy Father stands
with outstretched hands,
He gave His Son for thee:
Poor soul, from sinís
enthralling bands
He longs to see thee free.
Return, return!


Arise, stand up and homeward turn,
No longer dwell apart;
His mighty love will never spurn
One humble contrite heart.
Return, return!


Our Fatherís house is full of bliss,
And there is room for all;
He welcomes with forgiving kiss:
O, hear His loving call!
Return, return!


The feast of joys awaits thee there,
The precious robe and ring;
O haste Thy Fatherís gifts to share,
O haste His praise to sing:
Return, return!
