1 Have you seen the cross of Calv’ry,
Have you met the One who died,
Have you learnt the deeper meaning,
And by faith been justified?

Refrain:
You must see it for yourself,
You must see it for yourself,
No one else can see it for you,
You must see it for yourself.

2 Have you heard Christ’s invitation,
Have you listened to His voice,
Has the word of peace and pardon,
Made your trembling heart rejoice? [Refrain]

3 Have you taken what He offers,
Have you come to Him for rest,
Do you own Him Lord and Master,
With your mouth is He confessed? [Refrain]

4 Do you know that you’re forgiven,
Are you resting on His word,
Have you claimed His precious promise,
Blest assurance from the Lord? [Refrain]
