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 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]
