1 There’s a place for me at the Saviour’s cross,
When in sorrow bending low;
There is cleansing power in the precious blood;
There’s salvation in its flow.

Refrain:
There’s a place for me, blessed place for me,
At the cross where my Saviour died;
There’s a place for me in his loving breast;
Ever there may I abide.

2 There’s a place for me at the mercy seat,
When in Jesus’ name I plead,
When I lift my eyes to the throne above,
Where he lives to intercede. [Refrain]

3 There’s a place for me in his harvest field,
And a work for me to do,
If I love the Lord who redeemed my soul,
Let me serve him truly, too. [Refrain]

4 There’s a place for me in the Father’s house,
There are mansions bright and fair,
With my robes made white thro’ his saving blood,
There’s a crown for me to wear. [Refrain]
