Representative Text

1. O soul, from Calv’ry’s cross
A voice is calling thee,
The voice of Him who died
To make you free.
He gave His life for thee,
He gave His life for me,
And still in patient love,
He pleads now with thee.

2. They nailed Him to the cross,
With thorns they pierced His brow,
O come in faith alone,
And trust Him now.

3. ’Tis done, My work is o’er;
O hear His bitter cry,
That shook the trembling earth,
And rent the sky.

4. He died, but lives again;
O blessèd truth divine!
Thro’ Him eternal joy
May yet be thine!
