Representative Text

1 The Savior came to seek and save His lost ones,
Who had wandered far away;
To rescue them from sin, His life He offered
On Calvary’s cross one day.

Refrain:
It was your sin and my sin
That nailed Him to the tree,
For your sake and my sake
He made salvation free;
No gift from earth’s treasure
His grace e’er can measure,
But your love and my love
Is all He asks today.

2 ’Twas love, unbounded love for us that led Him
O’er that lonely, thorn-strewn way;
For you and me He bore the shame and sorrow
On Calvary’s cross that day. [Refrain]

3 Oh, hear His voice so gently now entreating,
Then no longer from Him stray;
Accept the gracious call, and leave your burden
At Calvary’s cross today. [Refrain]
