1 There is pardon, full and free,
At the cross,
Whatsoe’er our sins may be,
At the cross;
Let us now the Lord entreat,
With our burdened souls to meet,
And bestow that pardon sweet,
At the cross.

Refrain:
At the cross, at the cross,
There’s redemption there for me,
At the cross.
At the cross, at the cross,
There’s redemption there for me,
At the cross.

2 There’s a peace that none can tell,
At the cross,
In the Savior’s all is well!
At the cross;
Let us seek that peace to prove,
That is showered from above
Thro’ the Master’s dying love,
At the cross. [Refrain]

3 There’s a joy that all may feel,
At the cross,
If in humble faith they kneel,
At the cross;
Let us taste that joy so great,
Ere it be for us too late,
Mercy will not always wait,
At the cross. [Refrain]

4 There’s a hope that will endure,
At the cross,
It is like an anchor sure,
At the cross;
Let us now that hope obtain,
That shalt never prove in vain,
While believing we remain
At the cross. [Refrain]
