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.

I Died Broken Hearted

Representative Text

1 With sorrow and woe I was cruelly crowned,
And beaten with stripes, tho' no blame could be found;
In hateful derision they mocked at My shame,
They scorned proffered mercy, rejecting My claim.

I suffered in silence because of your sin,
I died broken-hearted to save sinful men.

2 I plead by the cross, where I suffered and died;-
I point to the wounds in My hands, feet and side;
O let Me come into your heart and remain,
The King of Redemption forever to reign. [Chorus]

3 I rose from the grave and ascended on high,
While angels were chanting their songs in the sky;
Thro' ages unending the theme of My love
Shall sound thro' the mansions of glory above. [Chorus]
