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 In my work, whate’er it be,
Ever keep me near the cross!
Whatsoe’er it bringeth me,
Ever keep me near the cross!

Refrain:
Near the cross! near the cross!
When angry billows toss,
That my soul may fear no loss,
Ever keep me near the cross!

2 If my talents be out few,
Ever keep me near the cross!
I must all my duty do,
Ever keep me near the cross! [Refrain]

3 Reaping grain, or sowing seed,
Ever keep me near the cross!
Still my Saviour’s grace I need,
Ever keep me near the cross! [Refrain]
