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 Was there anything that Jesus left undone, left undone,
When He came to earth to save us ev’ry one, ev’ry one?

Refrain:
Oh, no, no, no, there was nothing left undone.
Oh, no, no, no, there was nothing left undone.

2 Hear Him in the garden, saying, “Not My will, no My will.”
Oh! it was an awful mission to fulfill, to fulfill. [Refrain]

3 See Him now betrayed by Judas to His foes, to His foes.
All the terror that awaits Him, well He knows, well He knows. [Refrain]

4 See the crown upon His forehead, thorny crown, thorny crown,
How the tender flesh it pierces, pressing down, pressing down. [Refrain]

5 See Him on the cross suspended, agony, agony.
It was all that He might rescue such as we, such as we. [Refrain]
