'Lord, I'm Coming Home' Classic Performance From Voices Of Gaither

Check out this classic performance from Voice of Gaither of the song ‘Lord, I’m Coming Home.’

“I’ve wandered far away from God, now I’m coming home;
The paths of sin too long I’ve trod, Lord, I’m coming home.
Coming home, coming home, nevermore to roam; open wide Thine arms of love,
Lord, I’m coming home. I’ve wasted many precious years, now I’m coming home;
I now repent with bitter tears, Lord, I’m coming home.”

This classic hymn was composed by William Kirkpatrick, who was born in Ireland but later immigrated to the United States where he spent most of his life. This song is based on the story of the prodigal son as found in Luke 15.

In this video, the Voice of Gaither are singing live at the Grove Park Inn Resort in Asheville, NC back in 1999. Many people online shared about how nice it is to watch these old recordings and be encouraged by the musical talents of this group.

“These gatherings are such a blessing. It's good that we can still enjoy and be blessed by these years after,” one person writes on YouTube after watching the video.

“As I listen to this, and as the video spans the Homecoming friends, I see so many who have made their journey Home where our Father is waiting with open arms,” comments another person online. “There is also some of us who are still on this earth who haven't finished what God has for us to do. Let us not labor in vain, but let us be always witnessing and praying for the lost and with those who are not living in God's will that they can sing boldly ‘Lord I'm Coming Home’. God bless you all as you sing of His wonderful love for us!”

To know that one day we will meet our Maker is a hopeful and comforting truth. Until then, may we strive to keep living for the Lord and giving all glory to Him!
