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 They say my Lord was but a man
Who struggled on like you and me
To give the world a perfect plan
Of what a perfect man should be.

But I know He has redeemed me,
From my sin he set me free,
Yes I know He has redeemed me,
For He died on Calvary.

2 They say my Saviour could not be
The Son of God my Lord divine;
That He was but a man like me,
With passion in His heart like mine, [Refrain]

3 They say the world was wiser grown;
He could not suffer in my stead;
Nor could He for my sin atone,
For me His blood could not be shed. [Refrain]
