1. Look unto Me and be ye saved,
I heard the Just One say;
And as by faith on Him I gazed,
My burden rolled away.

I’ve passed the cross at Calvary,
I’m on the Heaven side;
The world is crucified to me,
Since Christ my ransom died;

Since Christ my ransom died.

2. By His atonement reconciled,

Between the world and me. [Refrain]

3. Oh, glorious height of vantage ground!
Oh, blest victorious hour!
In Him to trust and fully know
His resurrection power. [Refrain]
