Why Dost Thou Wander Away From Thy Lord


Why dost thou wander away from thy Lord?
Jesus is calling thee home;
Calling thee now through the truth of His word,
Jesus is calling thee home.
Now He is waiting the soul to receive,
Now He will help you His Word to believe,
Now every need of thy heart He’ll relieve;
Jesus is calling thee home.

Refrain:
Calling, calling,
Jesus is calling thee home;
Calling, calling,
Jesus is calling thee home.

Calling thee home from thy sin and its tears,
Jesus is calling thee home;
Calling thee home from thy sorrow and fears,
Jesus is calling thee home.
Why not accept your Redeemer tonight?
Why will you perish, with heaven in sight?
See through its portals the “Home-light” so bright;
Jesus is calling thee home. [Refrain]

All thy pollution He washes away,
Jesus is calling thee home;
Come with thy burden, He’ll not say thee nay,
Jesus is calling thee home.
Art thou unworthy? His blood yet avails;
Trembling and doubting, His word never fails;
Held by thy weakness, ’tis Jesus prevails;
Jesus is calling thee home. [Refrain]
