1  There is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified
Who died to save us all.

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.

3  He 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.

 

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

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