1 Shall I crucify my Saviour,
When for me He bore such loss?
Shall I put to shame my Savior?
Can I nail Him to the cross?

Chorus:
Shall I crucify my Savior?
Crucify my Lord again?
Once! oh, once! I crucified Him!
Shall I crucify again?

2 Are temptations so alluring?
Do earth pleasures so enthrall?
That I cannot love my Savior
Well enough to leave them all? [Chorus]

3 'T was my sins that crucified Him,
Shall they crucify Him yet?
Blackest day of nameless anguish,
Can my thankless soul forget? [Chorus]

4 Oh, the kindly hands of Jesus,
Pouring blessings on all men!
Bleeding nail-scarred hands of Jesus!
Can I nail them once again? [Chorus]
