1 If you could see Christ standing here tonight,
His thorn-crown'd head and pierced hands could view;
Could see those eyes that beam with heavn's own light,
And hear Him say, "Beloved, 'twas for you:"

Chorus:
Would you believe, and Jesus receive,
If He were standing here?
Would you believe, and Jesus receive,
If He were standing here?

2 If you could see that face so calm and sweet,
Those lips that spake words only pure and true;
Could see the nail prints in His tender feet,
And hear Him say, "Beloved, 'twas for you:" [Chorus]

3 He whispers to your heart, turn not away,
For He's beside you, in your narrow pew;
If you will listen, you will hear Him say
In loving tones "Beloved, 'twas for you." [Chorus]
