Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 O, homeless wand’rer, sad and lone,
An invitation, sweet, is giv’n;
Lay down your burden at His feet,
And claim a mansion, fair, in heav’n.

Refrain:
Come back, wand’rer, why longer stray?
Jesus, thy Saviour,
Calls thee today.
Come back, wand’rer, why longer stray?
Jesus, thy Saviour,
Calls thee today.

2 Why wander longer from thy God?
When saints and angels ever wait,
Thy quick turn, with crowns of gold,
And welcome at the golden gate. [Refrain]

3 To find the blissful paradise,
Thy feet should hasten on the way;
Nor tarry, ‘till the shades of night,
Are lost in an eternal day. [Refrain]
