Representative Text

1 The agonies of Calvary,
Could not His love dismay;
He would not yield, though God revealed
The price that He must pay.
He would not yield, though God revealed
The price that He must pay.

2 He stood condemned in Pilate’s Hall,
He heard the rabbles’ cry;
The King with none to own His cause,
My cause would not deny.
The King with none to own His cause,
My cause would not deny.

3 Lo! Jesus stands with broken heart,
With nail-pierced hands and feet:
He points unto His cross of woe,
Where love and mercy meet.
He points unto His cross of woe,
Where love and mercy meet.

4 The Savior stands at thy heart’s door
Bruised for thy cruel sin:
O why not open wide the door
And let Him enter in?
O why not open wide the door
And let Him enter in?
