Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

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 Hymnary.org, 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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Do you seek from sin a pardon
When its weight oppresses sore?
Would you feel its heavy burden
Lifted from you evermore?
Have you sought in vain to find it
When earth offer’d naught but dross?
Look, the pardon there awaits you,
It is written on the cross.

Refrain:
It is written on the cross,
It is written on the cross;
“Come, ye weary, heavy laden,”
It is written on the cross.

2 Are you weary and discouraged?
Is it long till set of sun?
Do you wonder with each nightfall
If the guerdon shall be won?
Tired soul, for you the message
When life’s trials beat and toss,
“Come, ye weary, heavy laden,”
It is written on the cross. [Refrain]

3 Would you know a love unbounded,
Such as earth can never give?
Love that suffered ev’ry anguish
That you might forever live?
Love that gave all, gladly, freely,
Never counting gain or loss?
Love of Christ, so deep, so changeless,
It is written on the cross. [Refrain]
