Hymnary Friends,

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.

They Crucified Him

From the Bethlehem manger home

Representative Text

1 From the Bethlehem manger-home,
Walking His dear form beside,
We to Calvary’s mount have come,
Where our Lord was crucified.

Refrain:
Sweet tones of love
come down the ages through:
“Father, forgive!
They know not what they do!”

2 Scornful words the soldiers fling,
Wicked rulers Him deride,
Saying, “If Thou be the King,
Save Thyself Thou Crucified. [Refrain]

3 Wondrous love for sinful men,
Of the sinless One that died!
May we wound Thee not again,
Thou, O Christ, the Crucified. [Refrain]
