Repentance April 17, 1916

 

Father I am coming home.

Thy child who far hath strayed.

The willful heart once want to roam.

Now at Thine altars laid.

 

Forgive the wayward life I led.

Cleanse Thou me of my shame.

Visit not Thy wrath upon my head.

Though Thee I oft profane.

 

For I now shun that downward path.

See the error of my ways.

Henceforth Ill fear Thy righteous wrath.

And ever upward gaze.

 

Father I am coming home.

Home! Never more to stray.

The willful heart once wont to roam.

Content at Thine altar I lay.
