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.

1. Are you worn with griefs and fears,
Have you wasted many years?
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Have you wandered far astray,
In the darkness lost your way?
There is shelter at the cross for you.

Refrain
There is shelter at the cross for you,
There is shelter at the cross for you;
By a world of sin denied,
Jesus suffered there and died;
There is shelter at the cross for you.

2. Do you long for love and peace,
From the tempter seek release?
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Do you fear the snares of sin,
Do you bear its marks within?
There is shelter at the cross for you. [Refrain]

3. Tho’ by deeds of sin defiled,
You are still the Savior’s child,
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Tho’ by doubt and fear oppressed,
In its shadow there is rest—
There is shelter at the cross for you. [Refrain]
