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, the gospel story tell
Of the cross!
Let the echo rise and swell
Of the cross!
Sing the Saviour’s grief and woe,
How His blood did freely flow,
Till the children all shall know
Of the cross!

Refrain:
Of the cross, of the cross!
Sing the Saviour’s grief and woe,
How his blood did freely flow,
Till the children all shall know
Of the cross!

2 Let us plead the holy name
And the Saviour’s pain and shame
Of the cross!
For His name must be our plea,
For salvation full and free,
And in death our hope must be
Of the cross! [Refrain]

3 Oh, the song shall never cease
Of the cross!
Of the mercy, grace and peace,
Of the cross!
For its glory gilds the way,
And it hath immortal ray,
And we’ll sing in heav’n for aye
Of the cross! [Refrain]
