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 Lord, I come to Thee with an aching heart,
I am waiting at the cross;
I confess my guilt, and with sin I part,
I am waiting at the cross.

Refrain:
Waiting at the cross, waiting at the cross,
Waiting at the cross for Thee;
Waiting at the cross, waiting at the cross,
Waiting at the cross for Thee.

2 I forsake the way I am walking in,
I am waiting at the cross;
Save me now, I pray, from this load of sin,
I am waiting at the cross. [Refrain]

3 I am bound, O Lord, but I come to Thee,
I am waiting at the cross;
It was there Christ suffered in pardon me,
I am waiting at the cross. [Refrain]

4 I repent, O Lord, as Thy word commands,
I am waiting at the cross;
Oh, release my heart from its sinful bands,
I am waiting at the cross. [Refrain]
