    Lyrics

    (Ira P. Stanphill)

    (Sang)
    Many years ago in days of childhood
    I used to play till evenin' shadows come
    Then windin' down that old familiar pathway
    I'd hear my mother call at set of sun.

    Come home, come home it's suppertime
    The shadows lengthen fast
    Come home, come home it's suppertime
    We're going home at last.

    (Spoken)
    Some of the fondest memories of my childhood
    Were woven around suppertime
    When my mother used to call
    From the backsteps of the old homeplace
    Come on home now son it's suppertime.

    Ahhhh, but I'd loved to hear that once more
    But you know for me time has woven the realization of
    The truth that's even more thrilling and that's when
    The call come up from the portals of glory
    To come home for it's suppertime.

    When all Gods children shall gather around the table
    of the Lord, Himself and the greatest suppertime of them all.

    (Sang)
    Come home, come home it's suppertime
    The shadows lengthen fast
    Come home, come home it's suppertime
    We're going home at last...
