Representative Text

1 They nailed my Lord upon the tree
And left Him, dying, there:
Thro’ love he suffered there for me;
'Twas love beyond compare.

Refrain:
Crucified! Crucified!
And nailed upon the tree!
With piercéd hands and feet and side!
For you! For me!

2 Upon his head a crown of thorns,
Upon his heart my shame;
For me he prayed, for me he died,
And, dying, spoke my blame. [Refrain]

3 "Forgive them, O forgive!" he cried
Then bowed his sacred head;
“O Lamb of God! my sacrifice!”
For me thy blood was shed. [Refrain]

4 His voice I hear, tis love I know;
I worship at tis feet;
And kneeling there, at Calv'ry's cross,
Redemption is complete. [Refrain]
