There is Life for a Look

Verse 1:
There is life for a look at the Crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee;
Then, look, sinner, look unto Him and be saved,
Unto Him who was nailed to the tree.

Refrain:
Look! look! look and live!
There is life for a look at the Crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee.

Verse 2:
Oh, why was He there as the Bearer of sin,
If on Jesus thy guilt was not laid?
Oh why from His side flowed the sin-cleansing blood,
If His dying thy debt has not paid?

Verse 3:
It is not thy tears of repentance and pray’rs,
But the Blood, that atones for the soul;
On Him, then, who shed it, thou mayest at once
Thy weight of iniquities roll.

Verse 4:
Then doubt not thy welcome, since God has declared
There remaineth no more to be done;
That once in the end of the world He appeared,
And completed the work He begun.

Verse 5:
Then take with rejoicing from Jesus at once
The life everlasting He gives;
And know with assuurance thou never canst die,
Since Jesus thy righteousness, lives.
