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

Full Text

1. We meet at the cross of Christ today,
The symbol of His giving;
And long for a fitting word to say,
How sweet the peace of living.

Refrain
Under the cross, the crimson cross,
Under the cross of Jesus;
Under the cross, the crimson cross,
Under the cross of Jesus!

2. We meet at the cross of Christ to sing
The sweetness of its story;
And still to the cross of Christ we cling,
Resplendent yet with glory— [Refrain]

3. We meet at the cross of Christ to bow
In earnest, silent pleading;
We think of the thorns upon His brow,
And lo, our hearts are bleeding— [Refrain]

4. We meet at the cross of Christ: O men,
Was ever love so eager?
We wait, as we search our hearts again—
O human love, how meager! [Refrain]

5. We meet at the cross of Christ to wait
The fullness of His blessing;
We bring empty hands so late, so late—
And lips so late confessing— [Refrain]
