Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? 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.
1 Christ laid a golden scepter down,
And left a vast domain,
To purchase sinners such as we,
And give to us a name.
Oh, why for sinners did He this?
Oh, why this sacrifice?
‘Twas love, yes, love for you and me,
Such love as never dies.
2 He laid aside a royal robe,
Put on a beggar’s dress,
That we forever might be cloth’d
In His own righteousness. [Refrain]
3 He own’d the flocks on yonder hills,
Yet knew the sorest need
That we, the sheep who hear His voice,
In pastures green might feet. [Refrain]Source: Crowning Day No. 3 #12
