IT IS GOOD TO BE HERE




Let me dwell on Golgotha,
Weep and love my life away!
While I see Him on the tree
Weep and bleed, and die for me!


That dear blood, for sinners spilt,
Shows my sin in all its guilt:
Ah, my soul, He bore thy load,
Thou hast slain the Lamb of God.


Hark! His dying words; “Forgive,
Father, let the sinner live;
Sinner, wipe thy tears away,
I thy ransom freely pay.”


While I hear this grace revealed,
And obtain a pardon sealed;
All my lost affections move,
Wakened by the force of love.


Farewell world, thy gold is dross,
Now I see the bleeding cross;
Jesus died to set me free
From the law, and sin, and thee!


He has dearly bought my soul
Lord, accept, and claim the whole!
To Thy will I all resign,
Now, no more my own, but Thine.


---Alternative verses---


While I hear this grace revealed,
And obtain a pardon sealed;
All my warm affections move,
Wakened by the force of love.
