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.

213. Hallelujah for the Cross!

1 The cross! it standeth fast,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Defying ev'ry blast,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
The winds of hell have blown,
The world its hate hath shown,
Yet 'tis not overthrown,
Hallelujah for the cross!
Yet 'tis not overthrown,
Hallelujah for the cross!

Chorus:
Hallelujah forever!
It never shall suffer loss,
Hallelujah forever!
We glory in the grand old cross.

2 It is the old cross still,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Its triumph let us tell,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
The grace of God here shone
Thro' Christ the blessed Son,
Who did for sin atone,
Hallelujah for the cross!
Who did for sin atone,
Hallelujah for the cross! [Chorus]

3 'Twas here the debt was paid,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
Our sin on Jesus laid,
Hallelujah! hallelujah!
So round the cross we sing
Of Christ our Offering,
Of Christ our living King,
Hallelujah for the cross!
Of Christ our living King,
Hallelujah for the cross! [Chorus]
