Representative Text

1 The Savior left heaven, the sinner to save;
What does it mean to you?
His life as a ransom most freely He gave;
What does it mean to you?

Refrain:
What does it mean to you?
What does it mean to you?
Are you His today, or yet astray?
What does it mean to you?

2 He suffered and died on the cross for your soul;
What does it mean to you?
His blood made a fountain that you might be whole;
What does it mean to you? [Refrain]

3 When dying He pleaded so sweetly for all;
What does it mean to you?
While thorn-crowned, He drank of the wormwood and gall;
What does it mean to you? [Refrain]
