During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

So, before you close this box and move on to use the many resources on Hymnary.org, please prayerfully consider whether you might be able to make a gift to support our work. Gifts of any amount are appreciated, assist our work and let us know that we have partners in our effort to create the best database of hymns on the planet.

Komm zum Kreuz mit Deinen Lasten

Representative Text

1 Komm zum Kreuz mit Deinen Lasten,
geh auf zu!
Bei dem Kreuze kannst Du rasten,
da ist Ruh!

2 Unter des Gerichtes Ruten
sieh am Kreuzesstamm
für dich dulden und verbluten
Gottes Lamm!

3 An dem Kreuze trug der Reine
deiner Sünde Lohn.
Sieh, wie liebt dich dieser Eine,
Gottes Sohn!

4 Da stillt Er dein heiß Verlangen,
heilet deinen Schmerz;
Frieden wirst du da empfangen,
müdes Herz!

5 Trost, Vergebung, ewges Leben
fließt vom Kreuz dir zu;
bei dem Kreuz wird Er dir geben
wahre Ruh!
