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.

When Jesus on the cross I see

When Jesus on the cross I see

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 When Jesus on the Cross I see;
My soul is mov'd within:
To think my Lord has died for me!
To free my soul from sin.

2 Should such a creature as I am,
My Lord's compassion move;
Astonishing that I should claim
The merits of his love.

3 Sure it would melt my hardn'd heart,
And humble me the more;
Could I but now and feel in part,
The pains my Saviour bore.

4 My proud, my stout, and selfish will,
No longer could abide;
My vile affections prone to ill,
Would soon be crucified.

5 Was all the force of learning join'd
To make me know and feel--
My dark and wretched state of mind,
Yet all could not avail.
