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,

Full Text

1 The kind Shepherd seeks for the wandering sheep,
Exposed to the storms and the cold;
His love never tires, and His eyes never sleep,
Till He brings them again to His fold.

Refrain:
Then come, O come home to the Father above,
His grace has provided for all;
It may be the last time in mercy and love
You ever will hear Jesus call.

2 ‘Tis Jesus, the Savior, whose voice you have heard,
To you he is calling today;
He calls by His goodness and tenderness too,
Then why will you longer delay? [Refrain]

3 Since the days of thy youth He has plead with you oft,
His pleadings have yet been in vain;
His great loving-kindness you could not deny,
If He never should call you again. [Refrain]

4 Then come to the Father, accept of His grace,
The raiment and feast in the hall;
Now turn from your sins and obey Him at once,
By hearing and heeding his call. [Refrain]
