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.

1 My Lord in the garden I see
In anguish by heaven’s decree;
His heart filled with woe
By sin’s deadly blow,
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.

2 Alone there my Saviour I see,
He only atoner can be;
His pure heart can feel
My guilt’s crushing heel,
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.

3 My Lord at the Judgment I see,
The Judgment where I ought to be,
His heart feels the blow
My heart ought to know,
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.

4 My Lord with the mockers I see,
Who scourging, reviling decree;
The thorn-prints He feels,
His heart faints, He reels,
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.

5 The blood on the cross I now see,
Atonement is made full and free;
His heart at last breaks,
No longer it aches,
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.

6 O, Saviour, to Thee now I flee,
My whole heart I now yield to Thee,
My all I now give
For Thee now to live.
The heart that was broken, was broken for me.
