We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 God is calling the prodigal, come without delay,
Hear, O hear Him calling, calling now for thee;
Tho’ you’ve wandered so far from His presence, come today,
Hear His loving voice calling still.

Refrain:
Calling now for thee, O weary prodigal, come;
Calling now for thee, O weary prodigal, come.

2 Patient, loving and tenderly still the Father pleads,
Hear, O hear Him calling, calling now for thee;
Oh! return while the Spirit in mercy intercedes,
Hear His loving voice calling still. [Refrain]

3 Come, there’s bread in the house of thy Father, and to spare,
Hear, O hear Him calling, calling now for thee;
Lo! the table is spread and the feast is waiting there,
Hear His loving voice calling still. [Refrain]
