Dear Friend of Hymnary,

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, 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.

Ĉe l' kruco de Jesuo

Full Text

1. Ĉe l' kruco de Jesuo!
Volonte starus mi,
La signo de espero ĝi
En homa histori';
Hejmloko dum la viv-marŝad'
Survoje al Cion',
Ŝirmejo por la pilgrimant',
Kun graco kaj pardon'.

2. Ho kara rifuĝejo,
Benita sen kompar',
Justeco kaj ĉiela am'
Kuniĝas por homar';
Kaj kie Jakob sonĝis pri
Anĝeloj kaj ŝtupar',
Mi vidis ĉe l' levita kruc'
La savon el erar'.

3. Sur la kruela kruco,
Enmense vidas mi
La suferantan Kriston,
Por mi ja mortis li;
Kaj mia koro, en dolor',
Du verojn konas ĝi:
“Ĉe la Savanto, Dia am',
Kaj neindec' en mi.”

4. La ombron de la kruco
Mi tenu en memor',
Sed helon de l' venkinta Krist'
Mi havu en la kor';
For! mondplezuro kaj prosper',
Portempa mem-estim'.
Riĉeco mia kaj fier' —
La Dia am-esprim'.

Her hymns appeared, almost all for the first time, in the Family Treasury, under the general title of Breathings on the Border. In publishing the first of these in the Treasury, the late Rev. W. Arnot, of Edinburgh, then editor, thus introduced them:— "These lines express the experiences, the hopes, and the longings of a young Christian lately released. Written on the very edge of this life, with the better land fully, in the view of faith, they seem to us footsteps printed on the sands of Time, where these sands touch the ocean of Eternity. These footprints of one… Go to person page >
