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 O, prodigal, come, I am waiting,
Why tarry on mountains so bare?
Why perish with cold and with hunger?
There's bread enough yet and to spare.
Come home, Come home,
O prodigal child, come home,
And squander thy substance no longer;
O prodigal child, come home.
2 O, prodigal, come, I am waiting,
The Savior said sweetly and low;
Thy sins tho' they be red as scarlet,
I'll make them as white as the snow. [Refrain]
3 O, prodigal, come, I am waiting,
From pleasures of sin turn away;
Make haste and come back to thy Father,
Thy soul may be lost in delay! [Refrain]
4 O, prodigal, come, I am waiting,
Eternity now draweth nigh;
Return and believe on the Savior,
And thou shalt have treasures on high. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Glory No. 1: a choice collection of gospel hymns #17
