#114: There is a Green Hill Far Away

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

There is a green hill far away,

Without a city wall,

Where the dear Lord was crucified,

Who died to save us all.

CHORUS

O dearly, dearly has He loved!

And we must love Him too,

And trust in His redeeming blood,

And try His works to do.

2

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.

CHORUS

3

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.

CHORUS

4

There was no other good enough

To pay the price of sin;

He only could unlock the gate

Of heav’n and let us in.

CHORUS
