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 Is it nothing to you that long ages ago
The Saviour from heaven came down,
Deprived of the glory he had upon high,
Bereft of his beautiful crown.

Refrain:
Is it nothing, nothing,
Nothing to you,
Is it nothing, O sinner, to you?
Bethink you today,
Ere your life ebbs away;
Is it nothing, just nothing to you?

2 Is it nothing to you that he wandered on earth,
Despised and rejected of men?
The foxes had holes and the birds had their nests,
But he had no resting place then. [Refrain]

3 Is it nothing to you that he died on the cross,
And bore such a terrible load,
While out of his bosom the stream of his love,
A current of crimson fast flowed. [Refrain]

4 Is it nothing to you that he entered the grave,
And met the last enemy there,
And conquered the legions of hell by his power,
The crown of the victor to wear. [Refrain]

5 Is it nothing to you that he’s coming again,
With angels a glorious train,
To sit on his throne as the judge of the world,
And then to eternity reign. [Refrain]
