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 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]
