Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Representative Text

1 Now, my soul, arise, thy Lord attending;
Follow to Gethsemane.
Lo! what wondrous grief His soul is rending!
Wondrous grief endured for thee.
To the ground behold the Savior falleth!
Lo! for help His wounded spirit calleth!
Lo! His blood the earth bedews,
Whilst His prayer thy Lord renews.

2 Ah! behold! for thee the Savior groaneth;
Him thy sins thus wound and grieve:
For thy guilt His precious blood atoneth,
And His death doth thine relieve;
Oh then ne’er disdain, oh ne’er disown Him:
Ever in thy love, my soul, enthrone Him:
On the cross where Jesus died
To the world be crucified.
