We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

Representative Text

1 Burdened with my guilt and shame,
With no merit I can claim,
Calling on the saving name,
I am coming to the cross of Jesus.

Refrain:
I am coming to the cross,
Counting worldly pleasures dross,
I am coming, I am coming to the cross;
At the dear Redeemer’s feet,
I will find salvation sweet,
I am coming, I am coming to the cross.

2 Weary of the way of sin,
Filled with doubts and fears within;
Longing pardon’s peace to win,
I am coming to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Utter helplessness to plead,
Trusting Him who knows my need,
My repentant pray’r will heed,
I am coming to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Clinging to the promise blest,
That the sad and guilt-oppressed
Here may find sweet joy and rest,
I am coming to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]
