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 Lord, I have wandered far from Thy fold,
I’m coming home today;
Back from the mountains, barren and cold,
I’m coming home today.

I’m coming home today,
I’m coming home today;
Jesus will all my burdens bear,
Hear me and answer pray’r.

2 Pleading forgiveness, low at Thy feet,
I’m coming home today;
Grant me thy grace and pardon complete,
I’m coming home today. [Refrain]

3 Lord, let Thy blessing enter my soul,
I’m coming home today;
Cleanse me from sin and make my heart whole,
I’m coming home today. [Refrain]
