189. Nailed to the Cross

1 There was One who was willing to die in my stead,
That a soul so unworthy might live;
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread,
All the sins of my life to forgive.

Refrain:
They are nailed to the cross,
They are nailed to the cross,
O how much He was willing to bear!
With what anguish and loss Jesus went to the cross!
But He carried my sins with Him there.

2 He is tender and loving and patient with me,
While He cleanses my heart of the dross;
But “there’s no condemnation” - I know I am free,
For my sins are all nailed to the cross. [Refrain]

3 I will cling to my Savior and never depart -
I will joyfully journey each day.
With a song on my lips and a song in my heart,
That my sins have been taken away. [Refrain]
