Representative Text

1 See the cross, the cross of Jesus,
Crimson with His own life’s blood;
Thus He dide, lest we should perish,
Wondrous love! Thou Son of God.

He will save you, trembling sinner,
Hasten to the crimson cross;
Oh, believe Him, He will save you,
Save you at the shelt’ring cross.

2 Dreadful weight of guilt and anguish
Fall on Him His love to prove;
Weight that on our souls had fallen,
But for His unbounded love. [Refrain]

3 Oh, His precious blood that bought us!
Oh, His pity for the lost!
Can you slight His love, poor sinner,
While so near the shelt’ring cross? [Refrain]

4 Hasten to Him, sinner, hasten!
Heaven yearns to make you blest;
Father, Son, and Spirit call you;
Come with all your woes oppressed. [Refrain]

5 Yield your heart and life to Jesus,
Freely He His grace will give;
With Him you shall reign in glory,
If for Him on earth you live. [Refrain]
