Behold Him Hanging

On the cross the Savior hanging

Author: E. C. Avis
Tune: [On the cross the Savior hanging]
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 On the cross the Saviour hanging,
Bled and died for you and me;
Wondrous love! Oh! who can know it,
Boundless, priceless, full and free.

On the cross, behold him hanging,
On the blood stain'd cross for me;
Jesus died to bring salvation,
Jesus died for you and me.

2 O, the blood stain'd cross of Jesus,
How it fills my soul with peace,
As I there behold him dying,
Bringing nought but my release. [Chorus]

3 'Tis indeed a truth most precious,
That for sinners Jesus died,
And we have a full remission
Through a Saviour crucified. [Chorus]
