Hymn lyrics to There Is A Green Hill Far Away, (1848) by Cecil Frances Alexander

  1. There is a green hill far away,
    Outside a city wall,
    Where the dear Lord was crucified,
    Who died to save us all.
  2. We may not know, we cannot tell
    What pains He had to bear,
    But we believe it was for us
    He hung and suffered there.
  3. He died that we might be forgiv’n,
    He died to make us good,
    That we might go at last to heav’n,
    Saved by His precious blood. 
  4. There was no other good enough
    To pay the price of sin,
    He only could unlock the gate 
    Of heav’n and let us in. 
  5. Oh, dearly, dearly has He loved! 
    And we must love Him too
    And trust in His redeeming blood
    And try His works to do.
