Such a Place

Lyrics 

Verse 1

In a place without beauty

A hill marred by blood

Crosses stood, two thieves dying

Caught in sin’s raging flood

But between them hung the Son of Glory

Scorned and beaten raw

Righteous Branch now on a tree of suff’ring

Such a place of love 

 

Verse 2 

Such a place found in nature

The Father designed

Knowing well He would ransom

Those secured to the Vine

The earth trembled at salvation’s story

Rocks were split in two

The eternal matchless King of Glory

Came to make things new 

 

Verse 3 

In a place where His blood flowed

Redeeming His own

We find hope for the morrow

Knowing He’s on the throne

For that hill where Christ gave up His life

Still beckons sinners come

Calv’ry’s mount will echo love for all time

Calling children home

They took Jesus, therefore, and He went out, bearing His own cross, to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha. There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.

John 19:17-18
