Grandpa loved to sing this song in his Alto voice.

"Lord, I'm Coming Home"

I've wandered far away from God -
Now I'm coming home;
The paths of sin too long I've trod -
Lord, I'm coming home.

I've wasted many precious years -
Now I'm coming home;
I now repent with bitter tears -
Lord, I'm coming home.

I've tired of sin and straying Lord -
Now I'm coming home;
I'll trust Thy love, believe Thy Word -
Lord, I'm coming home.

My soul is sick, my heart is sore -
Now I'm coming home;
My strength renew, my hope restore -
Lord, I'm coming home.

CHORUS
Coming home, coming home,
Nevermore to roam;
Open now Thine arms of love -
Lord, I'm coming home.
