8644. Jesus, The Crucified

1 On dark Calvary stands a cruel tree,
Where Christ the Savior died;
And the love thus shown doth for sin atone—
Jesus the Crucified.

O precious cross of Calvary,
Where Christ the Savior died,
Pouring forth His blood, a redeeming flood—
Jesus, the Crucified.

2 All my sins I bring to the cross and cling
Where Christ the Savior died;
And He speaks release, gives my soul sweet peace—
Jesus, the Crucified. [Refrain]

3 On this sacred hill precious memories thrill,
Where Christ the Savior died;
And I count but loss all beside the cross—
Jesus the Crucified. [Refrain]

4 Come unto the Lord, hear His pardoning word,
Where Christ the Savior died;
All your burdens lay at His feet today—
Jesus, the Crucified. [Refrain]
