Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Representative Text

1 He is calling thee, my brother, He is calling thee today,
Why from Him in cold and hunger wilt thou roam?
He so patiently entreateth thee no longer to delay,
For there's food and shelter waiting thee at home.

Chorus:
He is calling,
He is calling,
He is calling thee, my brother, to come home,
He is calling,
He is calling,
He is calling thee, my brother, to come home.

2 Now arise and say, "My Father, I have sinn'd and griev'd Thee sore,
I have spurned Thy loving favor many years;
Oh, have mercy, I beseech Thee, Thy forgiveness I implore;
With a pardon banish all my doubts and fears. [Chorus]

3 Ere thou reachest home He'll see thee and will hasten thee to greet,
With His arms outstretched to clasp thee to His breast;
He will gladly give thee welcome and with tenderness will meet;
Thou at home wilt be thy Father's favored guest. [Chorus]

4 He will spread for thee a banquet, all the saved will join the throng,
He will clothe thee in a robe of righteousness;
All the saints and angels gather round the throne will sing the song
Of redemption—and the Father's name will bless. [Chorus]
