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.

    I love this hymn. The choral writing is very good. However, the key changes and the elongation of some phrases might be a little difficult and inappropriate. The piano accompaniment is very nice. Nice piece.

    Enjoyable for The choir to study. One of those music that the congregation would happily join in the singing with the choir.
