Full Text

1 Have you ever heard the story,
How Jesus bled and died?
How He left His home in glory,
For us was crucified?

For it is wonderful, so very wonderful,
That He should die for me, should die on Calvary;
O yes, it’s wonderful, so very wonderful,
That He should die for you, for me.

2 Have you ever felt the presence,
Of Jesus crucified?
Has your heart been stirred within you,
While walking by His side? [Refrain]

3 Do you know the saving power,
The precious blood applied?
Has it washed away all sin-stains,
By Calv’rys cleansing tide? [Refrain]
