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 No home! no home! O hapless one,
Lift up thine eyes and see;
The door of hope is open wide,
The bread of life is free.

O quickly haste, and linger not,
Thy lamp may cease to burn;
Obey the warning voice of him
Who bids thee now return.

2 No home! no home! and yet that voice
Has called thee o’er and o’er;
His Spirit pleaded with thy soul
To give its wand’ring o’er. [Refrain]

3 No home! no home! how could’st thou thus
Amidst the desert roam,
When beckoning angels from the sky
In pity called, come home. [Refrain]

4 No home! ah, yes, ’tis thine at last,
Thine eyes its portals see;
Thy Father’s love receives, forgives,
And joyful welcomes thee. [Refrain]
