Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.
Harry Plantinga

What caused a deep and mournful sound

What caused a deep and mournful sound

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 What caus'd a deep and mournful sound?
What caus'd the earthquakes cleve the ground
Both heav'n and earth set in amaze?
The glorious Sun, to hide his face!

2 No wonder why the earth does shake,
The seas convuls'd, and mountains quake;
And nature shrinking with surprize,
Since Christ, the mighty Saviour dies.

3 His blood is streaming from the tree,
It is my Saviour, O 'tis he;
My only Saviour, O my God!
There shedding his attoning blood.

4 For me there on the Cross he hangs,
For me he feels such horrid pangs;
For me he yields his fleeting breath,
For me he dies that painful death.
