164 ~ There Is a Green Hill Far Away



1

There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.


2

We may not know, we cannot tell,
What pains He had to bear,
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffered there.


3

He died that we might be forgiven,
He died to make us good,
That we might go at last to heaven,
Saved by His precious blood.


4

There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heaven, and let us in.


5

O dearly, dearly has He loved!
And we must love Him too,
And trust in His redeeming blood,
And try His works to do.
