Verse1There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.
Verse 2We may not know, we cannot tell
What pains he had to bear;
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffered there
Verse 3He 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.
Verse 4There was no other good enough
To pay the price of sin;
He only could unlock the gate
Of heaven, and let us in.
Verse 5O dearly, dearly has he loved,
And we must love him too,
And trust in his redeeming blood,
And try his works to do.
