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

22. He Wept for Me

1 Did Christ o’er sinners weep,
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floods of penitential grief
Burst forth from ev’ry eye.

Refrain:
He wept, he wept,
He wept for me,
For me, for me,
He wept for me.

2 The Son of God in tears
The wond’ring angels see!
Be thou astonished, O my soul;
He shed those tears for thee. [Refrain]

3 He wept that we might weep;
Each sin demands a tear:
In heav’n alone no sin is found,
And there’s no weeping there. [Refrain]
