How Oft, Alas! This Wretched Heart
Has Wandered From The Lord!
How Oft My Roving Thoughts Depart
Forgetful Of His Word!

Yet Sovereign Mercy Calls “Return!”
Dear Lord! And May I Come?
My Vile Ingratitude I Mourn;
O! Take The Wanderer Home.

And Canst Thou Wilt Thou Yet Forgive,
And Bid My Crimes Remove!
And Shall A Pardoned Rebel Live
To Speak Thy Wondrous Love?

Almighty Grace! Thy Healing Power,
How Glorious How Divine!
That Can To Life And Bliss Restore
A Heart So Vile As Mine!

Thy Pardoning Love So Free, So Sweet,
Dear Saviour, I Adore;
O! Keep Me At Thy Sacred Feet,
And Let Me Rove No More.
