Lyrics

When on Calvary’s mountain,
God’s belovèd Son,
Opened up life’s fountain,
Lo! the work was done.

Refrain

Jesus paid the ransom
Laid on you and me,
When He bled and died
For us on Calvary.

He was pure and holy,
Vile and sinful we;
Yet the blessèd Savior
Died to make us free.

Refrain

On the cross He pleadeth
By His mighty love,
And He intercedeth,
Now for us above.

Refrain

Come, and now believe Him,
Who for thee hath died;
Come, and now receive Him,
Christ the crucified.
