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 Under an eastern sky,
Amid a rabble’s cry
A Man went forth to die,
For me, for me.

2 Thorn-crowned His blessed head,
Blood-stained His ev'ry tread;
Cross-laden, on He sped
For me, for me.

3 Pierced His hands and feet,
Three hours o’er Him beat
Fierce rays of noon-tide heat,
For me, for me.

4 Thus wert Thou made all mine;
Lord, make me wholly Thine;
Grant grace and strength divine
To me, to me.

5 In thought and word and deed,
Thy will to do, O lead
My soul, e’en though it bleed,
To Thee, to Thee.
