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.

O weary wanderer, come home, Thy Savior bids thee come

O weary wanderer, come home, Thy Savior bids thee come

Author: John Samuel Coffman
Tune: [Alas! and did my Savior bleed] (Hull)
Published in 8 hymnals

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.

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
