Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

All for me

I look away across the sea

Representative Text

1 I look away across the sea,
To Nazareth of Galilee,
And there in faith my Lord I see,
Who wrought for me salvation free.

For me, for me, how could it be
That Christ should bear my sins for me,
And suffer, oh, so cruelly
That I might live eternally.

2 On mountains cold and deserts bare
His pleadings pierce the midnight air,
Alone with God and nature there,
He took my case to heav’n in pray’r. [Refrain]

3 How oft upon His toilsome way
He fought the tempter ev’ry day,
And conquered sin in mortal clay
That I with Him might live for aye. [Refrain]

4 Within the garden’s deepest shade
In agony and gloom He pray’d,
Where all my guilt on Him was laid,
He drank the cup my sins had made. [Refrain]

5 Be mine the crime, be mine the blame,
That raised that cruel cross of shame,
But let me sound His wondrous fame,
And publish ev’rywhere His name. [Refrain]
