Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Full Text

1 Far from my home I’ve wandered
Over the paths of sin;
Treasures of life I’ve squandered,
No one will take me in.
God’s voice is calling:
“Come, O child of love”;
He waits to receive you
Into His home above.

All, all is forgiven,
Jesus has made you whole;
Joy, joy is in heaven
Over a ransom’d soul!

2 Strong are the bonds that hold me,
No one can set me free;
Shadows of night enfold me;
Father, I come to Thee!
God’s voice is calling:
“Come, no longer roam”;
Light stream o’er your pathway
Out from the door of home! [Refrain]

3 Out of my depth of weakness,
Out of my want and woe,
Father, to Thee in meekness
I will arise and go!
God’s voice is calling:
“Welcome, child of mine!
Come, enter thy kingdom;
All that I have is thine!” [Refrain]
