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

Full Text

1 Bear the cross; the crown will be the brighter
If through faith and patience it is won;
Weary not; thy burden will seem lighter
For the consciousness of duty done.

Refrain:
Bear the cross, bear the cross;
All the brighter will be the crown;
Bear the cross, bear the cross;
All the brighter will be the crown.

2 Bear the cross, nor ever faint or falter;
For the right be ever firm and true;
Naught can e’er His gracious purpose alter,
Who in tender love hath chosen you. [Refrain]

3 Bear the cross; the night will soon be over,
And the long expected light will come;
All the past His precious love will cover
With the joy of endless rest and home. [Refrain]
