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?

Full Text

1 My Saviour left His throne on high,
And came on earth for me to die;
What a glorious Redeemer!
At midnight in Gethsemane,
He drank the bitter cup for me;
What a glorious Redeemer!

Refrain:
What a glorious Redeemer is Jesus, my Saviour!
What a glorious Redeemer is Jesus, my Lord!

2 Beneath the heavy cross, low bent,
Up Calv’ry’s rugged steeps He went;
What a glorious Redeemer!
From sin and death to set me free,
There on the cross He died for me;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]

3 That all might know His pow’r to save,
He rose in triumph from the grave;
What a glorious Redeemer!
And now His cruel suff’rings o’er,
He reigns in bliss forevermore;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]

4 Reign too, O blessed King divine,
Forever in this heart of mine;
What a glorious Redeemer!
Thy sov’reign right in me I own;
In life or death I’m Thine alone;
What a glorious Redeemer! [Refrain]
