The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

On a Hill Lone and Gray

On a hill lone and gray
In a 4 land far a 1 way
In a country beyond the blue 5 sea
Where be- 1 neath that far sky
Went a 4 man for to 1 die
For the world and for 5 you and for 1 me

Oh it 4 bows down my heart
And the 1 tear drops do start
When in memory that gray hill I 5 see (hill I see)
It was 1 there on its side
Jesus 4 suffered, yes He 1 died
To redeem a poor 5 sinner like 1 me

Hark, I hear the dull blow
Of the hammer swung low
They are nailing my Lord to the tree
With the cross He upraised
While the multitude gazed
He ascended that hill lone and gray

Shout aloud to them I'm told
Let the glad tidings roll
From the land to the end of the sea
Where beneath that far sky
Went a man for to die
For the world and for you and for me
