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?

Full Text

1 My precious Savior suffered pain and agony,
He bore it all that I might live;
He broke the bonds of sin and set the captive free,
He bore it all that I might live.

Refrain:
He bore it all that I might see His shining face,
He bore it all that I might live;
I stood condemned to die but Jesus took my place,
He bore it all that I might live.

2 They placed a crown of thorns upon my Savior’s head.
He bore it all that I might live;
By cruel man with spear His side was pierced and bled,
He bore it all that I might live. [Refrain]

3 Up Calv’ry’s hill in shame the blessed Savior trod,
He bore it all that I might live;
Between two thieves they crucified the Son of God,
He bore it all that I might live. [Refrain]
