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.

I'll Go There Till the Stars Are Falling

Representative Text

1 The stroke of God for my sins fell
On younder calvary,
Where Jesus, in the gates of hell,
Ws hung intead of me.

Chorus: Oh, I'll go there till the stars are falling,
I'll go there till the tunders roll,
I'll go there till the trump is calling,
Where but there could I trust my soul?

2 The wrath of God was spent on Him
Who there upon the Tree
The cup of death full to the brim
Drained dry instead of me. [Chorus]

3 My sins He took upon HIs soul,
And on the Cross He paid
Wiht broken, bleeding heart the whole
Of judgment on Him laid. [Chorus]

4 Where judgement fires already burned,
The Lamb for sinners slain,
The broken law's demand is turned,
They cannot burn again. [Chorus]

5 The Cross will stand when heavens flee,
And earth rells to and fro,
There till that Day of God I see,
Poor sinner I will go. [Chorus]
