VERSE 1:
Upon a Life I have not lived,
Upon a Death I did not die,
Another’s Life; Another’s Death,
I stake my whole eternity.

CHORUS:
O Jesus, Son of God, I build on what Thy cross has done for me;
O there both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see, there I see.

VERSE 2:
Not on the tears which I have shed,
Not on the sorrows I have known,
Another’s tears; Another’s griefs,
On these I rest, on these alone.

Chorus:
O Jesus, Son of God, I build on what Thy cross has done for me;
O there both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see, there I see.

VERSE 3:
Lord, I believe; oh deal with me,
As one who has Thy Word believed!
I take the gift, oh, look on me,
As one who has Thy gift received.

Chorus:
O Jesus, Son of God, I build on what Thy cross has done for me;
O there both my life and death I read,
my guilt, my pardon there I see, there I see.
