There Is A Green Hill

Rating: 3.8
THERE is a green hill far away,
Without a city wall,
Where the dear Lord was crucified,
Who died to save us all.

We may not know, we cannot tell
What pains he had to bear,
But we believe it was for us
He hung and suffer’d there.

He died that we might be forgiven,
He died to make us good,
That we might go at last to heaven,
Sav’d by his precious blood.

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

O dearly, dearly has he lov’d,
And we must love him too,
And trust in his redeeming blood,
And try his works to do.
Cecil Frances Alexander

2) Ireland Hymnal. A posthumous collection of her poems was published in 1896 by William Alexander, titled Poems of the late Mrs Alexander. This poem so loveliest thought and worded, what a most beautiful Song about His being crossed at Golgotha and the meaning of this...to make us able to enter heaven, He had paid our sin, so that we are able to come to God again.So much is God's love for us, for mankind.Brilliant poem Song. (see 3)

Twice chosen as The Classic Poem Of The Day. Hooray! Last year and today, same date. As about the poetess: Seven hymns penned by Alexander were included in the 1873 issue of the Church of Ireland Hymnal, and eighteen of her works were contained in A Supplement to Hymns Ancient and Modern (1889) . They continue to be well-accepted, as nine of her works were contained in both the 1960 and the 1987 editions of the Church of

I wouldn't favorite this poem because of religion. However, it's a nicely done tribute to Jesus.
