Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Come, my Father's family,

Come, my Father's family,

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Come my Father's Family,
Ye Ransom'd of the Lord,
Come, ye Sinners who with me,
Are ev'ry where abhorr'd;
Let us gladly trace his Steps,
Who suffer'd Death among the Jews;
Who the friendless Soul accepts,
Whom all beside refuse.

2 Jesus, the Dispis'd and Mean,
Our Master let us own,
He the Sacrifice for Sin,
The Saviour, he alone;
Let us take and bear his Cross,
Despis'd Disciples let us be,
Mock'd and slighted as he was,
For you, my Friend, and me.

3 None but Jesus will we sing,
None else will we adore;
He our Prophet, Priest, and King
Shall be for evermore;
None among the heavenly Powers,
Nor one on Earth our Praise can claim,
None bu Jesus call we ours,
None but the bleeding Lamb.
