Representative Text

1 In the hall of judgment see the Saviour stand,
Deadly pow’rs of darkness wait on every hand,
See the guarding sentry; hear the cruel word—
Crucify Him! Crucify your King and Lord.

Hail Him, crown Him King of kings, ye nations rise,
Join the angels’ songs of praise that fill the skies.

2 Oh, on calv’ry’s brow behold the Crucified,
See the cruel cross, the bleeding hands and side;
Oh, the grief and pain that paid the price of sin!
Oh, the wondrous love that sought the world to win. [Refrain]

3 See within the shadows gleam of angels’ wings,
Hear the heav’nly word that through the silence rings;
Look within the tomb; behold the Saviour rise,
Hail the risen One, the King of earth and skies. [Refrain]
