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 I stand before the cross of Christ,
The Saviour crucified;
And love repeats in whisper low:
“’Twas in my place He died!”
My place was there upon the cross,
And mine the sinner’s endless loss;
He took my place, the crucified;
For me He died, the Saviour died!
2 Unworthy of such mighty love,
I stand without a plea;
But when His justice marks my guilt,
I cry: “He died for me!” [Refrain]
3 He took my place, my soul is free,
The price has all been paid;
On Him that day upon the tree,
My guilt and sins were laid. [Refrain]
4 See Jesus in the sinner’s place!
Behold the matchless love!
And now the Son of god prepares
A place with Him above! [Refrain]Source: Revival Hymns: a Collection of New and Standard Hymns for Gospel and social meetings, Sunday schools and Young People's Societies #32
