THERE IS A GREEN HILL FAR AWAY
Outside a city wall
Where the dear Lord was crucified
Who died to save us all

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

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

He died that we might be forgiv'n
He died to make us good
That we might go at last to Heav'n
Saved by His precious blood

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

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

Words: Cecil Frances Alexander
