Nailed to the Cross

F                                Bb        F
There was One who was willing to die in my stead,
       C7                     F
That a soul so unworthy might live;
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread,
        C7                    F
All the sins of my life to forgive.

F               Fdim7  F
They are nailed to the cross,
                Fdim7  F
They are nailed to the cross,
      G7                     C7
O how much He was willing to bear!
With what anguish and loss
              C7   F
Jesus went to the cross!
       Bb         C7            F
But He carried my sins with Him there.

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.
