​Time To Come Back Home

This song is by Shirley Caesar, features Bishop Harold Williams and appears on the album Sailin' (1984).

The preacher gave the sermon
Then extended both his hands
The holy ghost was falling
On every listening man

But a lone some sat so late
And may have drifted far away
As he called them to the altar
You could hear the spirit say

It's time to come back home
Where you belong
It's time to come back home
Where you belong

Never more to roam from this place again

As the Lord poured out his spirit
And convicted more and more
The folks came round the altar
And repented down in their souls

Their tears were overflowing
But their hearts were filled with grace
Thanking the Lord for victory
And the joy that he gave

It's time to come back home
Where you belong
It's time to come back home
Where you belong

Never more to roam, hallelujah
Never more to roam
Never more to roam, I ain't goin' to roam, no, I ain't
Never more to roam from this place again

It's time to come back home
It's time to come back home

Sinner man, Jesus said, if any man hear my voice
Harden not your heart
Jesus is knocking on the door of your heart today
He says, behold, I stand at the door and knock
And if any man will open onto me
I will come in unto him and I will sup with him
Sinner, Jesus loves you, can't you feel his love?
The spirit is calling, he is reaching out his hand to you
He wants you, he needs you
He's calling you, he wants you, can't you hear his voice?
He's calling you

Jesus says if any man, if any man be in Christ
He is a brand new creature, yes he is
Come on to Jesus
Make up in your mind right now
You've been sitting there to long
You've been waiting to long
Telling everybody, "I have plenty of time, but I won't turn around right now"
All of your time is running out, it's already running out
It's time to come home to Jesus, for the blood is running over, if you're praying
Don't you, don't plan for tomorrow
It's time to come, it's time to live right
