Representative Text

1 There is life in a look at the crucified One,
And joy to the spirit within;
There is pardon for thee,
Sinner, come and be free,
For his blood giveth cleansing from sin.

Refrain:
Oh, trust in his own precious blood,
Who gives us acceptance with God;
He has pardoned my sin,
He renews me within,
I love him and trust in his word.

2 There is peace in a look at the crucified One,
He bore all my burden and shame;
I have nothing to bring,
To his mercy I cling,
I am trusting alone in his name. [Refrain]

3 There is rest in a look at the crucified One,
When weary I fly to his care;
He invites me to come,
In his love there is room,
And I'm welcome his mercy to share. [Refrain]

4 There is hope in a look at the crucified One,
A hope that a mansion is mine,
Where the saints robed in white,
In the City of Light,
Through faith in the Crucified shine. [Refrain]
