(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 heard 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...
This song is from the album "Clinging to a Saving Hand", "Who Will Pray for Me [Universal]" and "The Gospel Spirit [MCA Nashville]".
