This gospel song 'At The Cross' reminds us that Jesus came and died for us. He paid the penalty for our sins by shedding His blood at the Cross.
John 19:32-34 King James Version (KJV)
32. Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
33. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
34. But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
Matthew 26:28 King James Version (KJV)
For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Hebrews 9:22 King James Version (KJV)
And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
Alas! and did my Savior bleed
And did my Sov’reign die?
Would He devote that sacred head
For such a worm as I?
At the cross, at the cross where I first saw the light,
And the burden of my heart rolled away,
It was there by faith I received my sight,
And now I am happy all the day!
Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, Thine—
And bathed in its own blood—
While the firm mark of wrath divine,
His soul in anguish stood.
Was it for crimes that I had done
He groaned upon the tree?
Amazing pity! grace unknown!
And love beyond degree!
Well might the sun in darkness hide
And shut his glories in,
When Christ, the mighty Maker died,
For man the creature’s sin.
Thus might I hide my blushing
While His dear cross appears,
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness,
And melt my eyes to tears.
But drops of grief can ne’er
The debt of love I owe:
Here, Lord, I give myself away,
’Tis all that I can do.
