1 Saw ye my Saviour, saw ye my Saviour,
Saw ye my Saviour and God?
Oh! He died on Calvary,
To atone for you and me,
And to purchase our pardon with blood.

2 He was extended, He was extended,
Painfully nailed to the cross;
Here He bowed His head and died,
Thus my Lord was crucified,
To atone for a world that was lost.

3 Jesus hung bleeding, Jesus hung bleeding
Three dreadful hours in pain;
And the solid rocks were rent,
Thro' creation's vast extent,
When the Jews crucified the Lamb.

4 Darkness prevailed, darkness prevailed,
Darkness prevailed o'er the land;
And the sun refused to shine
When His Majesty divine
Was derided, insulted, and slain.
