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 dark and lonely mount,
The Son of God I see;
His tears are flowing as a fount,
He weeps, dear soul, for thee.

Lost soul, he died for thee,
From sin to make you free;
Upon dark Calv’ry’s rugged brow,
Lost soul, he died for thee.

2 Where darkness hides the sun’s pure light
In awful mystery,
With gloom far thicker than the night,
He bleeds and moans for thee. [Refrain]

3 And when is drained the found of life
On cross-crowned Calvary,
He dies, a victor in the strife—
He dies, O soul, for thee. [Refrain]

4 Now from the throne of God above,
High as eternity,
With heart that’s full of tender love,
He intercedes for thee. [Refrain]
