STRETCHED ON THE CROSS, CHRIST JESUS DIED
(Tune: When I Survey #118 LM)
Stretched on the cross, Christ Jesus died,
For guilty sinners crucified;
From His dear hands, His feet, His side,
Flowed forth the saving, crimson tide!
That saving stream from Cal'vry flows
To save and cleanse His rebel foes;
Though we deserve God's endless wrath,
Christ Jesus took our place in death!
He passed the fallen angels by,
But came for chosen men to die;
Christ took our sins, He took our place,
He died for us – Amazing grace!
Behold the scene of pain and woe;
God's justice, grace and wisdom know:
God found a way to save His own -
He sacrificed His darling Son!
