During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

1. More marred than any man’s
The Savior’s visage see;
Was ever sorrow like to His,
Endured on Calvary!

2. Oh, hear that piercing cry!
What can its meaning be?
My God! my God! oh! why hast Thou
In wrath forsaken Me?

3. Oh ’twas because our sins
On Him by God were laid;
He who Himself had never sinned
For sinners, sin was made.

4. Thus sin He put away
By His one sacrifice
Then, Conqueror o’er death and hell,
He mounted to the skies.

5. Therefore let all men know
That God is satisfied;
And sinners all who Jesus trust
Through Him are justified.

Author: William Russell

Russell, William, was born in Glasgow in 1798, and educated at the University of Glasgow. Removing from Scotland to America, he was at Savannah in 1817, and subsequently at other places in the United States. He was an active promoter of education, teachers' associations, and kindred objects, and did much to further the cause of education in the States. He was originally a Baptist, but did not hold to close communion. He died at Lancaster, Massachusetts, Aug. 16, 1873. His hymn, "O'er the dark wave of Galilee" (Christ in Solitude), begins with st. iii. of a poem written by him at the request of Dr. Ware, editor of the Unitarian Christian Examiner, and printed therein in 1826.
