    Verse 1
    There is a green hill far away,
    Without a city wall,
    Where the dear Lord was crucified
    Who died to save us all

    Verse 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

    Verse 3
    He died that we might be forgiven,
    He died to make us good,
    That we might go at last to heaven
    Saved by His precious blood

    Verse 4
    There was no other good enough
    To pay the price of sin;
    He only could unlock the gate
    Of heaven, and let us in

    Verse 5
    O dearly, dearly has He loved,
    And we must love Him too,
    And trust in His redeeming blood,
    And try His works to do.
