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.

Representative Text

1. There’s a feast now awaiting, prepared by loving hands,
In the midst of the banquet, the gentle Savior stands;
Then no longer go roving o’er deserts bare and wild,
See! the Father now is waiting to greet His weary child.

You’re invited, are you coming?
O accept the invitation; all things are ready, come;
You’re invited, are you coming?
See the Father now is waiting to welcome wand’rers home.

2. Come, for all things are ready, why will you stay away?
Hear the kind invitation, O come, without delay;
’Tis the day of salvation; why will you longer roam?
There’s a mansion now preparing, for you in yonder home. [Refrain]

3. ’Tis a feast everlasting, abundant, rich and free,
Thro’ the blood of the Savior, an open door we see;
Come and wear the white raiment, the wedding garment fair,
And the Lord and all His angels will bid you welcome there. [Refrain]
