1 I look away across the sea,
To Nazareth of Galilee,
And there in faith my Lord I see,
Who wrought for me salvation free.

Refrain:
For me, for me, how could it be
That Christ should bear my sins for me,
And suffer, oh, so cruelly
That I might live eternally.

2 On mountains cold and deserts bare
His pleadings pierce the midnight air,
Alone with God and nature there,
He took my case to heav’n in pray’r. [Refrain]

3 How oft upon His toilsome way
He fought the tempter ev’ry day,
And conquered sin in mortal clay
That I with Him might live for aye. [Refrain]

4 Within the garden’s deepest shade
In agony and gloom He pray’d,
Where all my guilt on Him was laid,
He drank the cup my sins had made. [Refrain]

5 Be mine the crime, be mine the blame,
That raised that cruel cross of shame,
But let me sound His wondrous fame,
And publish ev’rywhere His name. [Refrain]
