He saved my soul that day

Royston 1946 (Reading)



“Not My will, but Yours be done.”
To the Father said the Son.
As that awful road He trod
to the cross, The Son of God.

Lash by lash the pain He bore.
and a crown of thorns He wore.
Then they nailed Him to the tree
where He suffered there for me,

As He hung, arms opened wide
with a spear they pierced His side.
Father, Holy Spirit, Son
by Your love, the battle’s won.

‘twas the price He had to pay
and my soul was saved that day.
Heavens’ gate is opened wide
and I can now step inside
