Nailed to His Cross (Lyrics)

Posted on Posted in Modern hymn, Slow Tempo, Southern Gospel

Verse One

When Abel’s offering cost his life

When Moses struck the stone

When David stole Uriah’s wife

A lamb could not atone

 

Channel One

But if they could have looked ahead in time

They’d see a spotless Lamb who took their crime

 

Chorus

When Jesus took the law’s decree

That said that I was lost

He carried it up Calvary

And nailed it to His cross

 

Verse Two

I stood before Mount Sinai

And heard God’s Holy Law

It showed me what I really was

I earned the wrath I saw

 

Channel Two

And when I heard the price I could not pay

Grace took me forward to another day

 

Bridge

And when my sins are read on judgment day

I will not plead a thing except to say

That…
