On A Hill Lone And Gray

print

On a hill lone and gray
In a land far away
In a country beyond the blue sea
Where beneath that far sky
Went a man for to die
For the world and for you and for me

   Oh it bows down my heart
   And the tear drops do start
   When in memory that gray hill I see
   It was there on its side
   Jesus suffered yes he died
   To redeem a poor sinner like me

Oft I hear the dull blow
Of the hammer swung low
They are nailing my lord to the tree
With the cross he upraised
While the multitude gazed
He ascended that hill lone and gray

   Oh it bows down my heart
   And the tear drops do start
   When in memory that gray hill I see
   It was there on its side
   Jesus suffered yes he died
   To redeem a poor sinner like me
   
   Shout aloud to them I’m told
   Let the glad tidings roll
   From the land to the end of the sea
   Where beneath that far sky
   Went a man for to die
   For the world and for you and for me
