There’s a hill lone and grey, in a land far away,
In a country beyond the blue sea,
Where beneath the fair sky went a Man forth to die
For the world and for you and for me.

Oh, it bows down my heart
And the teardrops will start,
When in mem’ry that grey hill I see.
For ‘twas there on its side, Jesus suffered and died
To redeem a poor sinner like me.

Behold! Faint on the road, ‘neath a world’s heavy load,
Comes a thorn crowned Man on the way,
With a cross He is bowed, but still on through the crowd
He’s ascending that hill lone and grey.


Let the sun hide its face, let the earth reel apace,
Over men who their Savior have slain;
But behold from the sod, comes the blest Lamb of God,
Who was slain and is risen again.

Shout aloud then my soul,
Let the glad tidings roll
From the land to the end of the sea!
Where beneath that far sky when a man hoped to die
For the world and for you and for me.
