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 He "gave Himself for me"; oh, blessed word!
Oh, gift that has my deepest longings stirred
To yield myself to Him; henceforth to be
Entirely His who gave Himself for me!
2 His life for me!—spent in this world of sin,
That He to God poor outcast souls might win;
His life for me!—laid down in matchless love,
Now occupied for me in Heaven above.
3 His mind for me! His wisdom formed the plan
Whereby release was brought to guilty man.
His will for me!—not slow to carry out
That plan whereby He frees from sin and doubt.
4 His heart for me! Its life-blood freely shed
To save the sinner—suffering in his stead;
And still His heart for me, to feel my grief,
To bear my burden, and to give relief.
5 His voice for me! He speaks that I may know
The One who pities—yea, who loves me so.
His hands for me!—once pierced by cruel nail,
Now raised in prayer, lest my weak faith should fail.
6 His feet for me!—that this world weary trod,
Now coming soon to take me home to God.
His eye, His ear, His riches, all for me—
And all my own for all eternity!
