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

Representative Text

1 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Guilty and full of sin,
I’ve wander’d so far from his mercy,
Still he will take me in.

I’m coming back to Jesus,
Back to the truth and right,
I know it will cost me a struggle,
But I’m coming back tonight;
I’m coming back to Jesus,
I’m coming back tonight.

2 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Back to the arms of love,
I’ll come, and all broken with sorrow,
His sweet forgiveness prove. [Refrain]

3 I’m coming back to Jesus,
Leaving all else behind,
Farewell to the sins that beguile me,
Now I shall pardon find. [Refrain]
