We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below. From the entire Hymnary.org team, our grateful thanks.

Wounded for Me

Representative Text

1 Wounded for me, wounded for me,
Wounded for me, He was wounded for me.
Gone my transgressions and now I am free,
All because Jesus was wounded for me.

2 Dying for me, dying for me,
Dying for me, He was dying for me.
Gone my transgressions and now I am free,
All because Jesus was dying for me.

3 Risen for me, risen for me,
Risen for me, He is risen for me.
Gone my transgressions and now I am free,
All because Jesus is risen for me.

4 Coming for me, coming for me,
Coming for me, He is coming for me.
Then with what joy His dear face I shall see;
Oh, how I praise Him, He’s coming for me.
