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,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 I stand beholding Calvary’s cross
Where Christ, my Savior, died;
I see Him hanging on the tree,
For sinners crucified.

Refrain:
What a precious Savior,
Great and glorious Savior,
What a precious Savior is Christ the Lord;
What a precious Savior,
Great and glorious Savior,
What a precious Savior is Christ the Lord.

2 What grief and pain was Thine, O Christ!
As thus Thy life was giv’n
To save us from the pow’r of death,
And win our souls for heav’n. [Refrain]

3 What wondrous love was thus made known,
How rich and free His grace!
That gave the Father’s only Son
To save a ruined race. [Refrain]

4 I humbly bow on Calvary,
Accept His grace so free;
The Savior’s sacrifice and love,
At last has conquered me. [Refrain]
