I’ve wandered far away from God

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.
  Coming home, coming home,
  Nevermore to roam;
Open wide Thine arms of love;
    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’m 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.
My only hope, my only plea,
  Now I’m coming home;
That Jesus died, and died for me;
  Lord, I’m coming home.
I need His cleansing blood, I know,
  Now I’m coming home;
O wash me whiter than the snow;
  Lord, I’m coming home.

One of the great hymns of faith. This hymn has brought me through some very hard times. Thank You, God.

It's a great hymn of experience, only Christ can bring and accept us home. Thank You Lord for this moving song. We have wasted many years on things that do not satisfy, only Jesus can give what we need.

Born in Ireland, Kirkpatrick spent most of his life around the Philadelphia area where he served as music director in various Methodist churches. He is said to have compiled 100 gospel song books. -Songs of the Spirit by Martin

Kirkpatrick wrote this song at a camp meeting in Rawlinsville, Pennsylvania, with a very specific purpose: to win the soul of his soloist, a nonbeliever. After Kirkpatrick prayed for the young man, these words came to him. He wrote them down quickly, and after the soloist sang them that night, he became a Christian.- Winning Songs by John J. Hood

Yes ....I've wandered far away from home.....and now I am coming home....I need to be hugged by my Father God and feel His presence everyday of my life. Father, every sinful act I have done, fornicating, gossiping, preaching what I don't practice, enving, lying and many others...You have known my going out and my coming in, cleanse me by the blood of Jesus and sanctify me Daddy and make me pure and whole. Renew me and purify me oh God and make me worthy of Your kingdom. Wash me and make me as white as snow though my sins are as red as blood. Today I make a fresh start with You. Thank You for the Blood of Jesus. I ask all this in Jesus Name....Amen.

I broke down in tears when we sang this song in church at a closure of a presentation from our preacher of the day, I've wandered far away from God, my family and the world has swallowed me, please God forgive me and take me back.
