The Prodigal Has Come Home

Dedicated to Alex - my brother

For years he has wandered in the far country
Far away from the Father's house to roam,
But something happened there that left him destitute -
Now at wits end, the prodigal has come home...

 

 

He has squandered all his living in Vanity Fair
Soon he was left with nothing - so hungry and alone,
But somehow a precious promise stirred his soul -
Oh wonder of wonders, the prodigal has come home...

 

 

The swine husks could never truly satisfy
And oh how soon the wine became tasteless foam,
Coming to his senses, as if waking from a dream
With purpose of heart, the prodigal has come home...

 

 

Realizing that he had sinned sorely against Heaven
He turned in faith to the Saviour on His throne,
Repented and asked the Lord for forgiveness
With tears of joy, the prodigal has come home...

 

 

Our Heavenly Father is pleading with compassion and love
The Lamb has been slain, His blood shed, and our sins now atoned,
The invitation is given, the mansion prepared, Jesus awaits your response -
Oh prodigal, prodigal... won't you come home?

 

Are you a prodigal? Jesus is calling... Come Home!

The midi being played is:
Softly And Tenderly
by Will L. Thompson.

 

Softly and tenderly Jesus is calling,

Calling for you and for me;
See, on the portals He's waiting and watching,

Watching for you and for me.


Come home,... come home,...

Ye who are weary, come home,...
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

Calling, O sinner, come home!

 

Why should we tarry when Jesus is pleading,

Pleading for you and for me?
Why should we linger and heed not His mercies,

Mercies for you and for me?


Come home,... come home,...

Ye who are weary, come home,...
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

Calling, O sinner, come home!

 

Time is now fleeting, the moments are passing,

Passing from you and from me;
Shadows are gathering, death-beds are coming,

Coming for you and for me.


Come home,... come home,...

Ye who are weary, come home,...
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

Calling, O sinner, come home!

 

Oh! for the wonderful love He has promised,

Promised for you and for me;
Tho' we have sinned, He has mercy and pardon,

Pardon for you and for me.


Come home,... come home,...

Ye who are weary, come home,...
Earnestly, tenderly, Jesus is calling,

Calling, O sinner, come home!


If you are weary of wandering, and want to come home,
