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

306. There Is a Green Hill Far Away

1 There is a green hill far away
outside a city wall,
where the dear Lord was crucified
who died to save us all.

2 We may not know, we cannot tell
what pains he had to bear,
but we believe it was for us
he hung and suffered there.

3 There was no other good enough
to pay the price of sin;
he only could unlock the gate
of heav'n and let us in.

4 O dearly, dearly has he loved,
and we must love him too,
and trust in his redeeming power,
and try his works to do.
