We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Representative Text

1 My dear Redeemer see,
Forsaken and forlorn;
Drinking the vinegar and gall,
And crowned with ragged thorn.

2 They pierced him to the heart,
Oh let me view the wound!
And count the precious, flowing drops,
That stain the thirsty ground.

3 Ah! who could mar thee thus,
That never didst offend?
How could a sinful world combine
Against the sinner's friend?

4 They needed not the spear
To shed my Savior's blood;
Love would have bust his tender heart,
Whilst mercy poured the flood.

5 O copious, healing stream!
Though urged by hostile hand;
From evil springs the might good
That cleanses Judah's land.
