Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

Ĉe l' kruco de Jesuo

Representative 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'.

Clephane, Elizabeth Cecilia, third daughter of Andrew Clephane, Sheriff of Fife, was born at Edinburgh, June 18, 1830, and died at Bridgend House, near Melrose, Feb. 19, 1869. 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 >
