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.
1 My boy has wander’d far from home!
So far, I know not where;
I know temptation lurketh near,
And sin has spread a snare.
My boy has wander’d far from home!
O Savior, hear my plea;
And ye who seek for erring feet,
Go bring him back to me.
2 My boy has wander’d far from home!
The storm is dark and wild;
And bitter foes, on ruin bent,
Pursue my wand’ring child. [Refrain]
3 My boy has wander’d far from home!
And oh, to see his face,
Although it bears the stamp of sin,
And death has left its trace. [Refrain]
4 My boy has wander’d far from home!
But love can never sleep,
I, thro’ the long and painful hours,
My lonely vigil keep. [Refrain]Source: Triumphant Songs No.2 #79
