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

“It is finished!” Man of sorrows!
From thy cross our frailty borrows
Strength to bear and conquer thus.

While extended there we view thee,
Mighty Sufferer! draw us to thee;
Sufferer victorious!

Not in vain for us uplifted,
Man of sorrows, wonder-gifted!
May that sacred emblem be;

Lifted high amid the ages,
Guide of heroes, saints, and sages,
May it guide us still to thee!

Still to thee! whose love unbounded
Sorrow’s depths for us has sounded,
Perfected by conflicts sore.

Honored be thy cross forever;
Star, that points our high endeavor
Whither thou hast gone before!
