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.

Representative Text

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]
