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

Should we not glory in the cause

Representative Text

1 Should we not glory in the cause?
Of Christ our Sovereign Lord;
Who will be as he ever was,
Our great and sure reward.

2 The Christian man should never faint,
Tho' he should feel the smart--
It is the Cross that makes the Saint,
And purifies the heart.

3 This was Saint Paul's sincere desire,
For this he humbly pray'd;
O! may the Lord your minds inspire!
With grace as ye may need.

4 The Lord endow you from above!
Give you to understand:
The height and depth of saving love,
And bounties of his hand.

5 Far more than we can think or know,
Or any wise believe;
Will Christ on humble souls bestow,
Who seek in him to live.
