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 Where deserts abundantly bloom,
And souls full of music are found,
Who journey along day by day,
Tasting fruits that in Canaan abound,
A way is cast up for our feet
By Jesus the faithful and true,
And over the gateway is always inscribed,
“No burdens allowed to pass thro.”

No burdens allowed to pass through,
No burdens, no burdens with you;
Leave all at the cross, there by Calvary’s tree,
No burdens allowed to pass thro’.

2 This holy and beautiful way
No ravenous beast can pass o’er;
The foot that’s unclean is debarred
From touching that crystal-paved floor;
But wayfaring men shall not err
Who keep only Jesus in view,
And read what is written, so truthful and clear,
“No burdens allowed to pass thro.” [Refrain]

3 Redeemed ones with garments made clean,
In blood that was shed for the lost,
Walk there with a comfort unknown
Before they the threshold had crossed;
Cross over! away with your fear!
Oh, glory! there’s room there for you;
And still at the gateway you ever will hear,
“No burdens allowed to pass thro.” [Refrain]

4 Here songs interwoven with joy
On the heads of the ransomed abide,
While nearing the Zion above,
Just floating on love’s silv’ry tide.
Be careful for nothing, beloved,
For Jesus still careth for you;
See! there on the arch, wrote in letters of light,
“No burdens allowed to pass thro.” [Refrain]
