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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative 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]
