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?

328. His Loving Thought

1 When Jesus hung on Calvary,
He thought of you and me;
’Twas love that held Him there to be
A sacrifice for you, for me.

Refrain:
He thought of you, He thought of me,
While hanging there in agony;
Oh! wonder-love to you and me!
It broke His heart on Calvary.

2 He wore a crown on Calvary,
He thought of you and me;
He knew His thorny crown would be
A diadem for you, for me. [Refrain]

3 On that dread cross of Calvary
He thought of you and me;
He thought not of His agony;
His heart went out to you, to me. [Refrain]

4 At last He cried on Calvary,
He thought of you and me;
“ ’Tis finished for eternity!”
Oh! blessed cry for you, for me. [Refrain]
