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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 At the cross I was kneeling,
When the Lord Himself revealing,
Gave me peace in believing,
When I sought His mercy there.

2 At the cross I will glory,
And to all proclaim the story,
How I found my Redeemer,
And He heard my humble pray’r.

3 To the cross I am clinging,
And my faith and hope are singing
Songs of praise to my Saviour,
For His kind and gentle care.

4 I was lost but He found me,
With His love divine He bound me,—
O my full heart adores Him,
For He heard my humble pray’r.
