Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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.
Harry Plantinga

1 On the cross of Calvary,
Jesus died for you and me;
There He shed His precious blood,
That from sin we might be free.
Oh, the cleansing stream doeth flow,
And it washes white as snow;
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

Refrain:
It was for me,
For even me;
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

2 Oh, what wondrous, wondrous love
Bro’t me down at Jesus’ feet!
Oh, such wondrous, dying love
Asks a sacrifice complete;
Here I give myself to Thee,
Soul and body Thine to be;
It was for me Thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

3 Take me, Jesus, I am Thine,
Wholly Thine forevermore;
Blessed Jesus, Thou art mine,
Dwell within forevermore;
Cleanse, O cleanse my heart from sin,
Make and keep me pure within;
It was for this Thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

4 Clouds and darkness veiled the sky
When the Lord was crucified;
“It is finished!” was His cry
When He bowed His head and died.
It is finished, it is finished;
All the world may now go free;
It was for this that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]
