1 There is life for a look at the crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee;
Then look, sinner, look unto Him and be saved,
Unto Him who was nailed to the tree.

Refrain
Then look unto Him,
Then look unto Him and be saved;
There is life for a look at the crucified One,
There is life at this moment for thee.

2 Oh, why was He there as the Bearer of sin,
If on Jesus thy guilt was not laid?
Oh, why from His side flowed the sin-cleansing blood,
If His dying thy debt has not paid? [Refrain]

3 It is not thy tears of repentance or prayers,
But the blood, that atones for the soul;
On Him, then, who shed it, thou mayest, at once
Thy weight of iniquities roll. [Refrain]

4 Then take, with rejoicing, from Jesus at once,
The life everlasting He gives,
And know with assurance thou never canst die,
Since Jesus thy righteousness lives. [Refrain]
