We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

I will kneel at the cross

Representative Text

1 I will kneel at the cross in my sin and shame,
Trusting in the name of Jesus,
There the mercy divine I will humbly claim,
Trusting in the name of Jesus.

Refrain:
I am turning away from the world’s empty dross,
And forsaking the pathways of darkness and loss;
With my burden of guilt I will kneel at the cross,
Trusting in the name of Jesus.

2 I have only a penitent’s plea to bring,
Trusting in the name of Jesus,
To no hope but of pardoning grace I cling,
Trusting in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I can find rest and peace at the cross alone,
Trusting in the name of Jesus,
At the cross find a joy to my soul unknown,
Trusting in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 At the foot of the cross all my sins I’ll lay,
Trusting in the name of Jesus,
And the love that redeems me I’ll praise for aye,
Trusting in the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
