Representative Text

1 On the cross He bled and died,
Jesus Christ, the Crucified;
Took away my every sin,
Gave me grace the fight to win.

Oh, how wondrous was the love,
That could bring Him from above;
Jesus Christ who died for me,
On the Cross of Calvary.

2 And His feet by nails were torn,
On His head a crown of thorn;
Yet He cried, “forgive, O God,”
And for me He bore the rod. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas for me He suffered so,
Drank the bitter cup of woe,
For I nailed Him to the tree,
And he died, He died for me. [Refrain]
