We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

On Calvary's Cross One Day

Representative Text

1 The Savior came to seek and save His lost ones,
Who had wandered far away;
To rescue them from sin, His life He offered
On Calvary’s cross one day.

It was your sin and my sin
That nailed Him to the tree,
For your sake and my sake
He made salvation free;
No gift from earth’s treasure
His grace e’er can measure,
But your love and my love
Is all He asks today.

2 ’Twas love, unbounded love for us that led Him
O’er that lonely, thorn-strewn way;
For you and me He bore the shame and sorrow
On Calvary’s cross that day. [Refrain]

3 Oh, hear His voice so gently now entreating,
Then no longer from Him stray;
Accept the gracious call, and leave your burden
At Calvary’s cross today. [Refrain]
