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 O what joy the believer may know,
In rememb’ring what Jesus has done;
Tho’ in sin we abound,
With the Lord grace is found;
There is life thro’ the crucified One.

There is life thro’ the crucified One,
There is life thro’ the crucified One;
If a touch he will give, or a look, we may live,
There is life thro’ the crucified One.

2 If our days on the earth have been long,
Or our journey is scarcely begun,
With the Lord as our light,
We will live it aright;
There is life thro’ the crucified One. [Refrain]

3 Then we’ll sing of the goodness of God,
From the dawn to the setting of sun,
Till the whole world below
Shall rejoicingly know;
There is life thro’ the crucified One. [Refrain]
