Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

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.

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]
