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.

Representative Text

1 Long the path of sin I’ve trod,
Long I’ve wandered from my God,
On the desert far from home,
I have wandered all alone,
All alone, all alone,
I have wandered all alone.

2 While I wander day by day,
Sins beset me on my way,
Waves of sorrow round me roll,
Tempests gather o’er my soul,
O’er my soul, o’er my soul,
Tempests gather o’er my soul.

3 I will seek my Father’s face,
Plead His love and trust His grace,
I will turn, nor longer roam,
Jesus sweetly calls me home,
Calls me home, calls me home,
Jesus sweetly calls me home.

4 To His loving arms I’ll fly,
In His care I cannot die;
Saviour Thou who loves me best,
On Thy bosom let me rest,
Let me rest, let me rest,
On Thy bosom let me rest.

5 Take me Saviour, for thine own
Thou canst have, and Thou alone,
From my idols now I flee,
I resign them all for Thee,
All for Thee, all for Thee,
I resign them all for Thee.
