Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Rejoice, rejoice with angels bright,
The wand’rers are coming home,
From darkness turning to the light,
The wand’rers are coming home.

Refrain:
Coming home! coming home!
The wand’rers are coming home;
Rejoice, rejoice with angels bright,
The wand’rers are coming home.

2 Won by the Father’s boundless love,
The wand’rers are coming home,
The riches of His grace to prove,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]

3 From thorny paths their feet have pressed,
The wand’rers are coming home,
To share salvation’s peace and rest,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]

4 From sin’s defilement purified,
The wand’rers are coming home,
Cleansed by the blood of Him who died,
The wand’rers are coming home. [Refrain]
