The Prodigal Child

Verse 1:
Come home! come home!
You are weary at heart,
For the way has been dark,
And so lonely and wild;
O prodigal child!
Come home! oh come home!
Come home!
Come, oh come home!

Verse 2:
Come home! come home!
For we watch and we wait,
And we stand at the gate,
While the shadows are piled;
O prodigal child!
Come home! oh come home!
Come home!
Come, oh come home!

Verse 3:
Come home! come home!
From the sorrow and blame,
From the sin and the shame,
And the tempter that smiled,
O prodigal child!
Come home! oh come home!
Come home!
Come, oh come home!

Verse 4:
Come home! come home!
There is bread and to spare,
And a warm welcome there;
Then, to friends reconciled,
O prodigal child!
Come home! oh come home!
Come home!
Come, oh come home!

Mrs. Ellen H. Gates/W.H. Doane
