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.

1 No cross for me, O blessed Lord and Savior?
No cross for me, when Thou Thine own didst bear,
At midnight hour within the garden kneeling,
While pitying stars beheld Thy anguish there?

Refrain:
There is a cross, and gladly I accept it;
There is a warfare with a host of sin;
But Thou hast op'd the gate of life eternal,
And Thou wilt let Thine own dear children in.

2 No cross for me, when Thou the King of glory,
The Well-Beloved, the Father's only Son,
Didst with Thy blood atone for all transgressions?
For Thou hast tasted death for ev'ry one. [Refrain]

3 No cross for me? shall I on Pisgah's mountain
Content abide, from care and trail free?
Ah, no, but thro' the wilderness of sorrow,
Tho' pierced with thorns, my feet shall follow Thee! [Refrain]

4 "Take up the cross if thou art my disciple!"--
Deep in my soul I hear Thy words of love:
"Take up the cross, and when the war is over,
Home, rest, and crown, with endless joy above!" [Refrain]
