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.

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]
