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 To the cross of Christ, my Saviour,
I had brought my weary soul,
Burden’d, faint, and broken-hearted,
Praying, “Jesus, make me whole.”

Glory, glory be to Jesus,
I am counting all but dross,
I have found a full salvation,
I am resting at the cross;
I’m resting at the cross,
I’m resting at the cross,
I’m resting at the cross.

2 At the cross, while meekly bowing,
Jesus, smiling, bade me live;
“I have died for your transgressions,
And I freely all forgive.” [Refrain]

3 At the cross, while prostrate lying,
Jesus’ blood flow’d o’er my soul;
All my guilt and sin were covered,
And he whisper’d, “Child, be whole.” [Refrain]

4 At the cross I’m calmly resting,
Ev’ry moment now is sweet;
I am tasting of his glory,
I am resting at his feet. [Refrain]
