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 sinner, come home, the banquet is waiting,
Return to thy Father, sin’s folly forsaking;
That Father still loves thee, and waits to embrace
His penitent child, when returning through grace.

Refrain:
Then, sinner, come home; the feast is all ready;
Prepared for the blind, the poor and the needy;
The worst are invited, all welcome will be;
Return, then, there’s room at this table for thee.

2 Thy sins have been great, thy wanderings far;
But greater His mercy; then follow yon star,
That leads thee to Him, whom the angels adore;
And be happy at home, thence to wander no more. [Refrain]

3 He will not upbraid thee with sins of the past;
The Lord will forgive; He is true to the last;
The law of His mercy can not be repealed,
It standeth forever, with blood it is sealed. [Refrain]
