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,

1 Have you heard the story of the cross,
Where Jesus bled and died,
When your doubt was paid by his precious blood
That gushed from his wounded side.

Refrain:
He died of a broken heart for thee,
He died of a broken heart;
O wondrous love! it was for thee,
He died of a broken heart.

2 Have you heard how they placed the crown of thorns
Upon his lovely brow,
When he prayed, “forgive them, O forgive,
They know not what they do?” [Refrain]

3 Have you heard that he saved the dying thief,
When hanging on the tree,
Who looked with pitying eyes and said,
“Dear Lord, remember me?” [Refrain]

4 Have you heard that he looked to heav’n and said,
“’Tis finished”—all for thee?
Have you ever said, “I thank thee, Lord,
For giving thy life for me?” [Refrain]
