There is a Green Hill far away

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

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

Verse 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.

Verse 3:
He died that we might be forgiven,
He died to make us good.
That we might go at last to heav’n,
Sav’d by His precious blood.

Verse 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.

Cecil F. Alexander/Geo.C. Stebbins
