Nailed to the Cross

Date recorded: February 18, 2015

Words by: Mrs. Frank A Breck

Music by: Grant Colfax Tullar

There was One Who was willing to die in my stead,
That a soul so unworthy might live;
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread,
All the sins of my life to forgive.


He is tender and loving and patient with me,
While He cleanses my heart of the dross;
But “there’s no condemnation”—I know I am free,
For my sins are all nailed to the cross.


I will cling to my Savior and never depart—
I will joyfully journey each day,
With a song on my lips and a song in my heart,
That my sins have been taken away.


They are nailed to the cross,
They are nailed to the cross,
O how much He was willing to bear!
With what anguish and loss Jesus went to the cross!
But He carried my sins with Him there.

Please consider Come Ye Disconsolate sometime soon. Very nice, and something we didn’t have at OCC when I was there.
