1. Have you wandered away from your Father’s care,

Heavy-hearted and sad do you roam?

There’s a sweet gentle voice calling now to you –

Wand’ring child, wand’ring child, O come home.


Child, come home, child, come home,

Wander’ring child, why longer roam?

Tis thy Father entreats,

Wand’ring child, o , come home.

2. Is your frail bark adrift on life’s raging sea,

Are you tossed on its billows and foam?

There’s a safe harbour home, waiting now for you –

Wand’ring child, wand’ring child, O, come home.

3. He is pleading today, heed His gentle voice,

As He bids you no longer to roam,

To that dear Father’s house haste without delay –

Wand’ring child, wand’ring child, O, come home.

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
