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 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.
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]Source: The Old Story in Song Number Two #143
