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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Weighed by thy love for thy brother,
Weighed by thy love for thy God,
Weighed by thy faith in another,
Weighed by the shedding of blood.

Weighed in the balance, and wanting,
Weighed, but no Savior is there;
Weighed, but thy soul has been trifling,
Weighed, but found lighter than air.

2 Weighed by the hope of salvation,
Weighed by the Rock where ’tis built,
Weighed by the sweet invitation,
“Come, even now, if thou wilt.” [Refrain]

3 Weighed by the richest of treasures,
Weighed by their infinite loss,
Weighed by the brightest of pleasures,
Weighed by the dark, heavy cross. [Refrain]
