There was a cross

Representative Text

1 There was a cross, a cruel cross,
That bore a gift so rare;
A sacrifice our souls to free
From death and Satan’s snare.

His life He gave, thy soul to save,
On Him thine ev’ry sin was laid;
His life He gave, conquer’d the grave,
O dying man, thy debt He paid.

2 There was a grave, a lonely grave,
Where Christ the Saviour lay;
He rose again triumphantly,
Praise God, He reigns today. [Refrain]

3 There is a throne, a pure white throne,
Where God the Father reigns;
Christ intercedes at His right hand,
Relieving all our pains. [Refrain]

4 There is a home, a peaceful home,
On Canaan’s blissful shore,
Millions have travel’d to that land,
There’s room for millions more. [Refrain]
