1 There is life for a look at the Crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee,
Then look, sinner, look unto Him and be sav'd!
Unto Him who was nail'd to the tree.

Look! look! look and live!
There is life for a look at the Crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee.

2 It is not thy tears of repentance, or pray'rs,
But the blood that atones for the soul;
On Him, then believe, and a pardon receive,
For His blood now can make thee quite whole. [Refrain]

3 We are heal'd by His stripes; wouldst thou add to the word?
And He is our righteousness made;
The best robe of heaven He bids thee to wear,
Oh, couldst thou be better arrayed? [Refrain]

4 Then doubt not thy welcome, since God has declar'd
There remaineth no more to be done:
That once in the end of the world He appear'd,
And completed the work He begun. [Refrain]

5 But take, with rejoicing, from Jesus at once
The life everlasting He gives:
And know with assurance thou never canst die,
Since Jesus thy righteousness lives. [Refrain]
