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

241. There Is a Green Hill Far Away

1 There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.

Chorus:
Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved,
And we must love Him, too;
And trust in His redeeming blood,
And try His works to do.

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. [Chorus]

3 He died that we might be forgiv'n,
He died to make us good,
That we might go at last to Heav'n,
Saved by His precious blood. [Chorus]

4 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.
