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.

Resting under the Cross

Children of Israel see what shade

Published in 4 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Children of Israel see what shade,
The cross does us afford;
It was for weary travelers made,
We thank thee for it, Lord.

2 Here let us fit, and all prepare
To sing his worthy fame;
Who to redeem us sojourned here,
Christ Jesus is his name.

3 We sing thy sufferings, wounds and blood,
The virtue of thy pain:
We sing thy griefs, thou Son of God,
Thou Lamb for sinners slain.

4 We hail thee, thou by Jews reviled,
To thee we bow the knees;
Hail! very God, the promised child,
The prophets sang of thee.

5 While others praise an unknown God,
We each will sing of thee;
"Jesus has washed me in his blood,
And lived, and died for me."
