1 Behold, behold the Lamb of God,
On the cross, on the cross;
For you He shed His precious blood,
On the cross, on the cross;
O hear His agonizing cry,
"Eloi, lama, sabachthani,"
Draw near, and see your Saviour die,
On the cross, on the cross.

2 Behold His arms extended wide,
On the cross, on the cross;
Behold His bleeding hands and side,
On the cross, on the cross;
The sun withholds his rays of light,
The heav'ns are clothed in shades of night.
While Jesus doth for sinners fight,
On the cross, on the cross.

3 And now the mighty deed is done,
On the cross, on the cross;
The battle fought, the vict'ry won,
On the cross, on the cross;
"'Tis finished," now the Saviour cries;
To heav'n He turns His languid eyes;
Then bows His sacred head, and dies,
On the cross, on the cross.

4 Where e'er I go, I'll tell the story
Of the cross, of the cross;
In nothing else my soul shall glory,
Save the cross, save the cross;
And this my constant theme shall be,
Thro' time and in eternity,
That Jesus shed His blood for me,
On the cross, on the cross.
