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 Upon the cross He bled,
Upon the cruel tree;
‘Twas there my Savior shed
His precious blood for me.

For me those wounds He bore,
For me He knew this pain,
The thorny crown He wore,
That with Him I might reign.
For me those wounds He bore,
For me He knew the pain,
The thorny crown He wore
That with Him I might reign.

2 What wondrous thing is this
That Jesus Christ should die!
That He should bear this shame
That I might live on high! [Refrain]

3 Oh! Jesus, blessed Lord,
Why hast Thou loved me so
That thou shouldst bear my guilt
And carry all my woe? [Refrain]

4 To Thee my song I’ll raise,
Thy name I’ll loudly sing,
For Thou hast conquered death,
Let earth Thy praises ring! [Refrain]
