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. Sinner, list to Jesus’ call:
“Come, oh, come home”;
Off’ring pardon now to all—
Come, oh, come home.
Thou art sick—He offers healing.
Thou art blind—He gives the sight;
Trust His word, and round thee stealing
Soon will come the promised light.

Refrain
Come, O sinner, hear Him calling,
Calling now so tenderly,
Offering pardon now to all,
Come to Jesus now.

2. He is ever at thy side,
Come, oh, come home;
Yield thy heart, and He will guide,
Come, oh, come home.
Where thy faltering steps are treading,
There the saints of old have trod,
’Tis contrition’s mazes threading
Leads the sinner up to God. [Refrain]

3. Look to Jesus now for aid,
Come, oh, come home;
Bear the burden on thee laid,
Come, oh, come home.
Follow Christ, who, meekly bending,
Bore thy cross up Calvary,
By the love, all love transcending
He will now thy refuge be. [Refrain]
