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 Wanderer, Jesus is calling,
Lovingly calling you home,
Whispering soft to your spirit,
Tenderly bidding you come.
Turn from the world and its folly,
Come to your Saviour today;
Listen while Jesus is calling,
Lest you should grieve Him away.

Wanderer, come,—Christ calls you home,—
Listen today,—don’t grieve Him away!

2 Wanderer, Jesus is calling,
Patiently calling you now,
You can accept Him this moment,
Here at His feet you may bow.
Long has His mercy been waiting,
Waiting your heart to receive,
Jesus is willing to bless you,—
Wanderer, come and believe! [Refrain]

3 Wanderer, Jesus is calling,—
Why should you linger and wait?
Listen today to the message,—
Answer before ‘tis too late!
Swiftly the moments are passing,
Now is the time to decide;
What will you say to your Saviour?
For your salvation He died! [Refrain]
