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 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]
