I’ve been wanderin’ – I’ve been searchin’

In this world of dreams and woe.

And the thought comes oft to plague me,

“Is there nowhere else to go?”

I’ve been wandering’ –I’ve been searchin’

For a place to call my own,

Tired of groping for earthly treasure,

I’m overdue to find a home.

Once a thought near overwhelmed me,

It was this – where is true peace?

For the pain was always with me,

I could never find release.

But the Savior came and saved me;

I found a new security!

And there waits a home in heaven,

Where God gives peace eternally.
