On A Hill Lone And Gray

 

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
