To Jesus Crucified I SingDon Fortner


(Tune: #308 — Higher Ground — LMD )


1.        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!


2.        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!


3.        Awake, my soul! Awake, my tongue! Sing to the Lord this grateful song. —

Hosanna to His precious name! Amazing love and grace proclaim!

To Jesus crucified I sing. My heart, rejoice in Jesus’ name,

Until upon the streets of gold, in Glory I His face behold!
