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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 On joyful feet love runs to meet,
When the prodigal comes home;
And happy tears blot out past years,
When the prodigal comes home.

Refrain:
When the prodigal comes home,
When the prodigal comes home,
Oh, he will meet a welcome sweet,
When the prodigal comes home.

2 No smile too bright, no robe too white,
When the prodigal comes home;
Of all the best he is possest,
When the prodigal comes home. [Refrain]

3 He joins the feast, the honored guest,
When the prodigal comes home;
Glad hearts give birth to boundless mirth,
When the prodigal comes home. [Refrain]

4 Loud chant the throng a glorious song,
When the prodigal comes home;
O blessed sound! “The lost is found!”
When the prodigal comes home. [Refrain]
