(+Lyrics +meaning + translation) Music Review- Home Coming by Cory Asbury ft Gable Price “Here is the meaning of Homecoming in this song.”

Cory Hunter Asbury is an American gospel artist. He has a record deal with Bethel Music and Forerunner music. Gable Price is also an American gospel artist currently signed to Sparrow Records.

What is the song Home Coming by Cory Asbury ft Gable Price all about?

“Homecoming” in this song means when you repent, forsake your sins, confess them and return to God in truth and spirit after falling short of His Glory.

In the song, the artists acknowledge that they are sinners, serious sinners “Scarlet sin.” They confess to doing things that are not of God’s standard. 

Despite how scarlet their sin is, they know that the kind and loving God will forgive their sins, and welcome them back happily. This Cory and Gable sang in the chorus. 

View below:

“The children are singing, and dancing, and laughing

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming”

Hence, the “Father is welcoming, this is our homecoming,” means “… there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” This Bible verse can be found in Luke 15: 7″

The artists are glad to return to God because they know that 

“…though their sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” This Bible verse can be found in Isaiah 1:18

The artists are glad to God because they know that when Jesus nailed their debts to that old rugged cross, he forgave them, canceled all their debts, washed away their sins; His sacrifice on the cross, basically washed away all sins.

Also, the song may be talking about the second coming of God. The artists paint a picture of how heaven looks like, and then when the rapture takes place, remember the bible says in 1 Thessalonians 4: 17 “…Those that are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air…”

Lyrics to Home Coming by Cory Asbury ft Gable Price

Verse 1 (Cory Asbury)

Lord, I confess

That I’ve been a criminal

I’ve stolen Your breath

And sang my own song

And Lord, I confess

That I’m far from innocent

These shackles I wear

Oh, I bought on my own

 Chorus (Cory Asbury)

 These scarlet sins had a crimson cost

 You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

 An empty slate at the empty grave

 Thank God that stone was rolled away

Verse 2 (Gable Price)

Lord, I confess

I’ve been a prodigal

Made for Your house

But I walked my own roads

Then Jesus came

He tore down my prison walls

Death came to life

When He called me by name

Chorus

Scarlet sins had a crimson cost

You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

 An empty slate, at the empty grave

 Thank God that stone was rolled

 Repeat chorus

Scarlet sins had a crimson cost

 You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

 An empty slate, at the empty grave

 Thank God that stone was rolled away

Bridge (Cory Asbury and Gable Price.)

And I can see it now

Smiling in Heaven, You and I, You and I

And I see bright, crimson robes draped over the ashes

 A wide, open tomb where there should be a casket

 The children are singing, and dancing, and laughing

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

 Roses in bloom pushed up from the embers

 Our rivers of tears flow from good times remembered

 Families are singing, and dancing, and laughing

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

 Heaven joins in with a glorious sound

 And the great cloud of witnesses all gather ’round

 ‘Cause the ones that were lost are finally found

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

Chorus

Scarlet sins had a crimson cost

You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

An empty slate, at the empty grave

Thank God that stone was rolled

 Hook

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

 Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

 Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh-oh oh

The Father is welcoming

This is our homecoming

Interlude

Can you see it now?

Standing on the shores of Heaven

You and I, and our families

Singing, and dancing, and laughing

There’s truly no place like home

Yeah

Jesus, You’re so beautiful

Haha, see Him face to face

Can we sing that bridge together one last time?

Repeat Bridge 

I see bright, crimson robes

 I see bright, crimson robes draped over the ashes

 A wide, open tomb where there should be a casket

 The children are singing, and dancing, and laughing

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

 Roses in bloom, they pushed up from the embers

 Our rivers of tears flow from good times remembered

 Families are singing, and dancing, and laughing (Let’s go)

 The Father is welcoming (Come on)

 This is our homecoming

 And Heaven joins in with a glorious sound

 And the great cloud of witnesses all gather ’round

 ‘Cause the ones that were lost are finally found

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming

 Chorus

Scarlet sins had a crimson cost

 You nailed my debt to that old rugged cross

 An empty slate, at the empty grave

 Thank God that stone was rolled

 Outro

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 The Father is welcoming

 This is our homecoming
