Give Me a Sight of Jesus’ Cross!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

Give me a sight of Jesus’ cross,
His dying love, O such a cost,
Give me a trust in his shed blood;
That takes away my guilty load,
Let it my heart and soul subdue,
Melt me and change and make me new.

Give me a sight of Jesus’ cross,
His willingness to take my loss;
Taking my place, condemned for me,
Bearing God’s wrath, my perfect plea,
How can I keep my sinful way,
When Jesus died my sin to pay.

Give me a sight of Jesus’ cross,
His willingness to take my loss;
Taking my place, condemned for me,
Bearing God’s wrath, my perfect plea,
He took my sin without a grudge,
To defend me before the Judge.

Give me a sight of Jesus’ cross,
Such love and kindness that would bless;
All I deserve is nothing less,
Justice and wrath, and hopelessness;
But grace and truth they are free,
Through Jesus’ cross, offered to me.

(Tune: Eaton; 88. 88. 88.)
