Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from, 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 through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.

1 A man there lived in Galilee
unlike all those before,
for he alone from first to last
our flesh unblemished wore;
a perfect life of perfect deeds
once to the world was shown,
that all who see might mark his steps
and in them plant their own.

2 A man there dies on Calvary
above all others brave,
all human-kind to save and bless--
himself he scorned to save.
No thought can gauge the weight of woe
on him, the sinless, laid;
we only know that with his blood
our ransom-price was paid.

3 A man there reigns in glory now,
divine, yet human still;
that human which is all divine
death sought in vain to kill.
All power is his; supreme he rules
the realms of time and space;
yet still our human cares and needs
find in his heart a place.
