O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Unknown in 1888

Refrain added by Ira David Sankey

In the land of strangers,
Whither thou art gone,
Hear a far voice calling,
"My son! my son!"

"From the land of hunger,
Fainting, famished, lone,
Come to love and gladness
My son! my son!"

"Leave the land of riot,
Wasted, woe-begone,
Sick at heart and weary,
My son! my son!"

"See the door still open,
Thou art still my own;
Eyes of love are on thee,
My son! my son!"

"Far off thou hast wandered;
Wilt thou farther roam?
Come, and all is pardoned,
My son! my son!"

"Welcome, wand'rer, welcome,
Welcome back to home!
Thou hast wandered far away:
Come home! come home!"
