Upon The Cross He Bled


Upon the cross He bled,
Upon the cruel tree;
‘Twas there my Savior shed
His precious blood for me.

Refrain:
For me those wounds He bore,
For me He knew this pain,
The thorny crown He wore,
That with Him I might reign.
For me those wounds He bore,
For me He knew the pain,
The thorny crown He wore
That with Him I might reign.

What wondrous thing is this
That Jesus Christ should die!
That He should bear this shame
That I might live on high! [Refrain]

Oh! Jesus, blessed Lord,
Why hast Thou loved me so
That thou shouldst bear my guilt
And carry all my woe? [Refrain]

To Thee my song I’ll raise,
Thy name I’ll loudly sing,
For Thou hast conquered death,
Let earth Thy praises ring! [Refrain]
