Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.1134

First Line: There is a green hill far away,

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