Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

遠山迢迢,其色青青 (There is a green hill far away)

Full Text

一 遠山迢迢,其色青青,
在一古城之旁;
親愛的主在彼被釘,
為救我們而亡。

(副)祂既愛我這麼親切,我當親切愛祂;
傳揚祂的救贖寶血,繼續祂的生涯。

二 誰能知曉,誰能盡述,
祂受苦有多深!
但我相信祂受的苦,
全為我這罪人。

三 祂死,使我罪得饒恕;
祂死,使我得潔;
使我至終得進天府,
靠著祂的寶血。

四 除祂之外,再無甚麼
足以清償人罪!
惟祂能開天門的鎖,
並且引我進內。

[There is a green hill far away] (Stebbins)
