We don't often ask for money. Just twice a year. This is one of those times. 

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

In April 2020, according to Google Analytics, our Hymnary website had roughly 1.5 million sessions from approximately 1 million users. Both numbers were up 40% from April 2019. Amazing. And what a blessing! But it is expensive to serve all of these people -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people like you who love hymns.

And we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one critical source. 

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 sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. 

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

390. O Calvary

1 O blessed Lamb of God so dear!
For Thou hast come my heart to cheer;
Thy blood alone hath made me free,
That cleansing stream from Calvary.

Refrain:
O Calvary, dark Calvary,
There Jesus bore the cross for me;
O Calvary, dark Calvary,
Hark! hear Him groan for you and me.

2 Thou suffering One! Thy blood was shed,
A crown of thorns was on Thy head;
Oh, Thou didst bear such pain for me,
Upon the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

3 My gracious Lord, I will adore,
Through love He did my soul restore;
I heard Him gently calling me,
In melting tones from Calvary. [Refrain]

4 That crimson stream flows from Thy side,
O fountain great, so deep and wide;
My sins are gone, it reaches me,
That precious blood of Calvary. [Refrain]
