1. O wand'rer on a dreary waste,
How dark thy life must be!
No home, no hope, no resting place,
On life's wide restless sea.

Chorus:
Come home, (Come home,) come home, (come home,)

While open stands the gate (the gate;)
Come home, (Come home,) come home, (come home,)
O come ere it be too late (too late).

2. O wand'rer on a desert wild,
Why wilt thou longer stay?
The sands of time are ebbing fast,
Thy Father calls today.

3. O wand'rer in a weary land,
Oppressed with want and woe,
Arise at once; O tarry not,
But to Thy Father go.

4. A step, a look, an act of faith,
A simple heart-felt pray'r,
Will bring thee to thy Father's home,
To dwell forever there.
