Representative Text

1 Upon the dark and lonely mount,
The Son of God I see;
His tears are flowing as a fount,
He weeps, dear soul, for thee.

Lost soul, he died for thee,
From sin to make you free;
Upon dark Calv’ry’s rugged brow,
Lost soul, he died for thee.

2 Where darkness hides the sun’s pure light
In awful mystery,
With gloom far thicker than the night,
He bleeds and moans for thee. [Refrain]

3 And when is drained the found of life
On cross-crowned Calvary,
He dies, a victor in the strife—
He dies, O soul, for thee. [Refrain]

4 Now from the throne of God above,
High as eternity,
With heart that’s full of tender love,
He intercedes for thee. [Refrain]
