Long ago I saw my Savior
Bearing shame upon a tree;
The my heart was touched with sorrow,
For I saw he bled for me.
It is finished, loud he cried;
Oh what love for me He died.
In my stead he bled on Calvary;
Once for all Christ rescued me.
Lo, the sky was veiled in darkness;
Sudden trembling shook the ground
As the angry crowd was jeering,
Mocking Jesus all around. Chorus
The my Savior called to heaven
As I saw his love anew,
O my Father, please forgive them,
For they know not what they do. Chorus
Free salvation now he offer;
Take His gift, oh, hear His plea;
On the bloody cross behold Him,
Join His shout of victory. Chorus
