Jesus Died Upon the Tree

Representative Text

1 Christ, the Savior of sinners, came
Into the world to save;
Sing His glory, His worth, His fame,
Jesus alone can save.
No name else is given,
Search through earth and heaven.

Jesus alone, Jesus alone,
Jesus alone can save.

2 Tender were His works of grace,
Jesus alone can save;
Wheresoever His steps we trace,
Jesus alone can save.
Death and woe dispelling,
God’s great mercy telling— [Refrain]

3 “Works of righteousness” all in vain,
Jesus alone can save;
His blood cleanses from every stain,
Jesus alone can save.
Now His work’s completed,
Now in glory seated— [Refrain]

4 Tears can never forgiveness gain,
Jesus alone can save;
God will ever dead works disdain,
Jesus alone can save;
Hear His blest voice calling,
Blessings rich are falling— [Refrain]
