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.

Representative Text

1 By thy saving cross we stand,
Heart to heart, and hand to hand,
Savior and Friend;
By thy loving pow’r set free,
We would give ourselves to thee,
And thy faithful servants be
On to the end.
Heart to heart, and hand to hand,
By this saving cross we stand,
Bound to thee, a loyal band,
On to the end.

2 Thou didst die that we might live,
Thou dost all our sins forgive,
Thee we adore;
Help us still thro’ life to prove,
All the pow’r of thy great love,
In thy steps to fearless move,
Thine evermore.
Heart to heart, and hand to hand,
By this saving cross we stand,
Bound to thee, a loyal band,
Thine evermore.

3 Risen Savior, yet so near,
Friend above all others dear,
Light, Life and Guide;
Now thy glad inspiring voice,
Bids us in thy truth rejoice,
Serving thee, our blessed choice,
With us abide.
Heart to heart, and hand to hand,
By this saving cross we stand,
Bound to thee, a loyal band,
With us abide.

4 So around thy saving cross,
Counting all things else but loss,
Thy name we sing;
Ever may a watchful band,
Guard and hold, with steadfast hand,
This our trust, till ev’ry land,
Owns thee its King.
Heart to heart, and hand to hand,
By this saving cross we stand,
Bound to thee, a loyal band,
Jesus, our King.
