Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

11992. At Thy Cross

1 Jesus, Master, rescue me,
Weak and helpless, this my plea;
Thou hast triumphed o’er the grave,
Thou hast died my soul to save.
Though my sins are crimson red,
Thou for me Thy blood hast shed;
Trembling at Thy cross I bow,
Jesus, Master, cleanse me now.

2 Jesus, Master, hear my cry,
Pass me not unheeded by;
On these sightless eyes of mine,
Let Thy beams of mercy shine.
Lord I know Thou canst forgive,
Bid, O bid me look and live;
Trusting, at Thy cross I bow,
Jesus, Master, heal me now.

3 Jesus, Master, praise to Thee,
For Thy wondrous love to me;
From the mountain wild and steep
Thou hast brought Thy wandering sheep.
Thou hast washed my sins away,
Turned my darkness into day;
Joyful at Thy cross I bow,
Thou dost save and save me now.
