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.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full 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.
