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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Oh, how I longed once for rest on the way,
So tired and weary afar did I stray;
Peace in abundance came to me one day
Down at the cross of Jesus!

Refrain:
Now it is mine, gladness divine,
Found at the cross of Jesus!
Oh, what a wonderful blessing is mine,
Found at the cross of Jesus!

2 Sorrow I knew in the pathway of sin;
Now, praise the Lord, there is glory within!
For since I knew Him great joy mine has been—
Found at the cross of Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Will you not come and His love for you see?
Kind, tender-hearted, forgiving is He!
Joy far surpassing earth’s pleasures may be
Found at the cross of Jesus! [Refrain]
