We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 O weary wanderer, come home,
Thy Saviour bids thee come;
Thou long in sin didst love to roam,
Yet still He calls thee, come.

Refrain:
Help me, dear Saviour, Thee to own,
And ever faithful be;
And when Thou sittest on Thy throne,
O Lord, remember me.

2 Think of the Father’s house today,
So blest with plenteous store.
Think of thy sinful wand’ring way,
Then come, and roam no more. [Refrain]

3 Poor prodigal, come home and rest,
Come and be reconciled;
Here lean upon Thy Father’s breast;
He loves His wand’ring child. [Refrain
