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

340. Hallelujah For the Cross!

1 The cross, it standeth fast,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Defying every blast,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The winds of hell have blown,
The world its hate hath shown,
Yet it is not overthrown,
Hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer, never suffer loss!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer loss!

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!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer, never suffer loss!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer loss!

3 'Twas here the debt was paid,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Our sins on Jesus laid,
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
So round the cross we sing
Of Christ our offering,
Of Christ our living King,
Hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer, never suffer loss!
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross!
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
It shall never suffer loss!
