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

The cross of Calvary

Representative Text

1 It’s not ‘mid scenes of revel
My heart delights to be;
But it’s where my Saviour suffered—
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
But it’s where my Saviour suffered—
The Cross of Calvary.

2 O the matchless love that bought me,
O bounds that set me free,
Shout glory unto glory,
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
Shout glory unto glory,
The Cross of Calvary.

3 When Satan’s hosts pursue me,
Where think ye I should flee?
Unto this blessed refuge,
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
Unto this blessed refuge,
The Cross of Calvary.

4 Thus forever let me linger
Where Christ gives liberty;
And twine my heart-strings round it—
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
And twine my heart-strings round it—
The Cross of Calvary.
