Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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

933. Under an Eastern Sky

1 Under an eastern sky,
Amid a rabble’s cry
A Man went forth to die,
For me, for me.

2 Thorn-crowned His blessed head,
Blood-stained His ev'ry tread;
Cross-laden, on He sped
For me, for me.

3 Pierced His hands and feet,
Three hours o’er Him beat
Fierce rays of noon-tide heat,
For me, for me.

4 Thus wert Thou made all mine;
Lord, make me wholly Thine;
Grant grace and strength divine
To me, to me.

5 In thought and word and deed,
Thy will to do, O lead
My soul, e’en though it bleed,
To Thee, to Thee.
