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,

210. Bear the Cross

1 O brother, will you bear the cross
For Jesus everywhere,
Count all things gained for Him but loss
And all His favor share?

Refrain:
Bear the cross, bear the cross,
Ever stand by the cross alone;
Bear the cross, bear the cross,
For the blood-stained cross we own.

2 The glorious cross I love to bear
For Christ my blessed Lord;
Nor in the conflict will I fear—
He doth all grace afford. [Refrain]

3 How sweet will be the cross to you
When all is left behind,
When all things lost but Christ in view
Within thy heart enshrined! [Refrain]

4 Yes, Lord, for Thee I do forsake
All friends and earthly store;
I’ll suffer with Thee at the stake,
Rejoicing evermore. [Refrain]
