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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
If His disciple you would be;
Forsake the world and all its treasures;
And follow Him, His word believe.

Refrain:
Take up your cross and follow Jesus,
Give up the world and all its sin;
All needful grace He’ll surely give you;
Take up your cross and follow Him.

2 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
Tho’ it bring sorrow, loss and pain;
All your afflictions He’ll remember—
Crown you with everlasting gain. [Refrain]

3 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
Mark well His footsteps all the way;
Live but to honor and obey Him;
Follow Him humbly all the day. [Refrain]

4 Be not asham’d to follow Jesus,
AS He has taught you in His word;
Then when life’s conflicts all are over,
You will receive the great reward. [Refrain]
