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 Welcome home, O wandering child,
Leave sin’s mountain dark and wild;
Hear the Father’s voice now bidding you return!
Worldly pleasures are but vain,
In their midst, O why remain?
Enter now the narrow way, its rapture learn!

Refrain:
Do you hear the invitation:
Welcome home, O wandering child!
For your soul there’s free salvation,
Welcome home today, O weary, wandering child.

2 Welcome home—O words of cheer,
Falling on the sinner’s ear;
Fully trust in Him, the only refuge true!
Whosoever will may come
Unto pardon, love, and home,
And be happy thro’ His wondrous grace anew. [Refrain]

3 Welcome home, the Savior stands
With extended, pleading hands;
Will you tarry, and His heart so tender grieve?
There is danger if you wait,
Since the hour is growing late,
Come today, behind you sin and sorrow leave. [Refrain]
