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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Our Saviour came down from his home in the sky,
Down to the cross, to suffer and die,
Choosing the will of his Father to do,
Only for you, just you.

Refrain:
Only for you, just you,
Only for you, just you,
On the cross crucified
He suffered and died,
Only for you, just you.

2 Oft, oft was he smitten, discouraged and sad,
Burdened himself to make other hearts glad,
Daily he labored beneath heavens blue,
Only for you, just you. [Refrain]

3 Out there in the garden ‘neath olive tree’s shade,
There in his weakness, he fervently pray’d,
Bearing such sorrows as earth never knew,
Only for you, just you. [Refrain]

4 And since he ascended to heaven above,
Up to the home of his infinite love,
There he is praying eternity thro’,
Only for you, just you. [Refrain]
