1 He died for me, the Son of God,
He left His home in glory
To bear the sin of all the world—
Oh, sweet and tender story!

Refrain:
He died for me! He died for me!
He lives, in light and glory!
Oh, let me tell to all the world
The glad and blessèd story.

2 They crowned Him with a crown of thorns,
For me He meekly wore it;
They laid on Him the heavy cross,
For me, for me He bore it. [Refrain]

3 His love for me can never die,
In Heaven He standeth pleading;
He shows His side and wounded hands,
Forever interceding. [Refrain]

4 Thou blessèd Jesus, Savior mine,
My life, my all I owe Thee;
I long to love Thee more and more,
I would that all might know Thee. [Refrain]
