Representative Text

1 Is it nothing to you all ye that pass by?
Beholding the Saviour uplifted on high?
Mal-treated by men and forsaken by God,
Oh why is He nailed to that cross of wood?

Refrain:
Is it nothing to you? is it nothing to you?
That Jesus has died so that you might be free;
Is it nothing to you? is it nothing to you?
That He, by His blood, has bought liberty.

2 The Righteous One He, His words without blame,
And yet He is suff’ring in sorrow and shame;
Has justice forgotten the rights of the pure?
Oh why is He left God’s wrath to endure? [Refrain]

3 He only the mys’try great can explain:
“I lay down my life, I will take it again,
To ransom my sheep I am willing to die,
The Shepherd of love uplifted on high.” [Refrain]

4 Now the work is complete, He triumphed o’er death,
But hark to His cry, ere He yields up His breath;
“It is finished” O soul, then believe it and live,
There’s naught else to do, God can freely forgive. [Refrain]
