1. I’m so happy here,
With my Father dear,
Once lost, now I’m near again!
(It was) First His smiling face,
Then His warm embrace,
I’m surprised by grace again!
I was lost, now I’m found again!
I was dead, but now I live!
Come rejoice with us, and be merry then
Back in my Father’s house again!
2. Robe, ring, sandals on
And my hunger’s gone!
Back where I belong , again!
(Because He) Clothed me thoroughly,
(And then He) Reinstated me!
(Now I’m) Back in the family again!
