During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1 There is pardon, full and free,
At the cross,
Whatsoe’er our sins may be,
At the cross;
Let us now the Lord entreat,
With our burdened souls to meet,
And bestow that pardon sweet,
At the cross.

Refrain:
At the cross, at the cross,
There’s redemption there for me,
At the cross.
At the cross, at the cross,
There’s redemption there for me,
At the cross.

2 There’s a peace that none can tell,
At the cross,
In the Savior’s all is well!
At the cross;
Let us seek that peace to prove,
That is showered from above
Thro’ the Master’s dying love,
At the cross. [Refrain]

3 There’s a joy that all may feel,
At the cross,
If in humble faith they kneel,
At the cross;
Let us taste that joy so great,
Ere it be for us too late,
Mercy will not always wait,
At the cross. [Refrain]

4 There’s a hope that will endure,
At the cross,
It is like an anchor sure,
At the cross;
Let us now that hope obtain,
That shalt never prove in vain,
While believing we remain
At the cross. [Refrain]
