We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

There was a cross

Representative Text

1 There was a cross, a cruel cross,
That bore a gift so rare;
A sacrifice our souls to free
From death and Satan’s snare.

His life He gave, thy soul to save,
On Him thine ev’ry sin was laid;
His life He gave, conquer’d the grave,
O dying man, thy debt He paid.

2 There was a grave, a lonely grave,
Where Christ the Saviour lay;
He rose again triumphantly,
Praise God, He reigns today. [Refrain]

3 There is a throne, a pure white throne,
Where God the Father reigns;
Christ intercedes at His right hand,
Relieving all our pains. [Refrain]

4 There is a home, a peaceful home,
On Canaan’s blissful shore,
Millions have travel’d to that land,
There’s room for millions more. [Refrain]
