Scripture: Luke 15:11, Luke 15:12, Luke 15:13, Luke 15:14, Luke 15:15, Luke 15:16, Luke 15:17, Luke 15:18, Luke 15:19, Luke 15:20, Luke 15:21, Luke 15:22, Luke 15:23, Luke 15:24, Luke 15:25, Luke 15:26, Luke 15:27, Luke 15:28, Luke 15:29, Luke 15:30, Luke.
This time-honored hymn portrays the gentle, invitation of Christ's call to "Come home." Like the story of the prodigal's return (Luke 15:11-32), Christ stands at the door waiting and watching for the weary. Joel Raney's elegant presentation lends passion and depth while staying true to the original 19th-century hymn by Will Thompson.
