Representative Text

1 ‘Twas on the cross of Calvary
That Jesus died to set us free;
His blood was shed that we might be
Saved from all sin eternally.

Refrain:
Yes, He was crucified, my Lord was crucified,
He bore my sins upon the tree,
Yes, He was crucified, my Lord was crucified,
My Lord was crucified for me.

2 He did not die for worldly gain
As earth’s renowned He was not slain;
he sought not fame, nor praise of men,
But died that we might live again. [Refrain]

3 ‘Twas by His pow’r o’er death and grave
Triumphant came He forth to save;
He burst the bars and make us free;
He won for us the victory. [Refrain]

4 Today he sits enthroned on high,
Ruler of men, of earth and sky;
No cruel thorns, but sceptre, crown
Are His reward for life laid down. [Refrain]
