Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, 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 by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

86. King of My Life (Lead Me to Calvary)

1 King of my life I crown thee now,
thine shall the glory be;
lest I forget thy thorn-crowned brow,
lead me to Calvary.

Refrain:
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
lest I forget thine agony,
lest I forget thy love for me,
lead me to Calvary.

2 Show me the tomb where thou wast laid,
tenderly mourned and wept;
angels in robes of light arrayed
guarded thee whilst thou slept. [Refrain]

3 Let me, like Mary, through the gloom,
come with a gift to thee;
show to me now the empty tomb,
lead me to Calvary. [Refrain]

4 May I be willing, Lord, to bear
daily my cross for thee,
even thy cup of grief to share;
thou hast borne all for me. [Refrain]
