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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 On the cross the Saviour hanging,
Bled and died for you and me;
Wondrous love! Oh! who can know it,
Boundless, priceless, full and free.

On the cross, behold him hanging,
On the blood stain'd cross for me;
Jesus died to bring salvation,
Jesus died for you and me.

2 O, the blood stain'd cross of Jesus,
How it fills my soul with peace,
As I there behold him dying,
Bringing nought but my release. [Chorus]

3 'Tis indeed a truth most precious,
That for sinners Jesus died,
And we have a full remission
Through a Saviour crucified. [Chorus]
