Hymn/Song Information

To the the cross where Jesus dies Where




To the the cross where Jesus dies,
Where my Lord resigns his breath;
Where affliction veils his eyes.
Swimming in the tears of death:
Thither bringing all my guilt,
From avenging wrath I flee,
To the blood of sprinkling spilt
Spilt to set the sinner free.


'Mid convulsive agonies.
Peace his quivering lips impart;
Pardon seals by broken sighs
Issuing from a bursting heart;
Let me feel this healing power,
Let this hardened heart of stone
Melt beneath the purple shower.
From his body trickling down.


On those temples, crowned with thorns,
Suffering majesty appears;
Love that dying face adorns,
Stain'd with blood and soil'd with tears;
Pierce the shadows of the heart.
With the lightening of that eye;
Smiles of peace to me impart.
Let me feel, or I must die!
