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? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

1 Saviour, I have heard thee pleading,
Passionately interceding,
Seen thy great heart broken, bleeding
All for me, all for me;
Lo, I come, the past lamenting,
For the wasted years repenting,
And my life henceforth presenting,
All for thee, all for thee.

2 Thou didst stoop in thy compassion
To be found in human fashion,
And endure thy nameless passion
All for me, all for me;
In thy name I come believing,
Of thy grace with joy receiving,
And the world behind me leaving,
All for thee, all for thee.

3 Moved by love divine and tender,
Thou didst joyfully surrender
Palaces of rest and splendor
All for me, all for me;
Now my soul to life awaking
Finds her highest joy in breaking
Bonds that bound her, and forsaking
All for thee, all for thee.

4 ‘Neath the cross I see thee bending,
To the place of skulls ascending,
None attending, none befriending,
All for me, all for me;
Now my heart with thy life beating
To each cross shall give glad greeting,
While my lips are still repeating
All for thee, all for thee.

5 In thy father’s glory sharing,
And the crown of ages wearing,
Thou art now a home preparing
All for me, all for me;
With the souls of thy befriending,
Saved from sorrow never-ending,
Shall my song be heard ascending
All for thee, all for thee.
