1. Menjulang nyata atas bukit kala t'rang benderang salibMu, Tuhanku. Dari sinarnya yang menyala-nyala memancarkan kasih agung dan restu. Seluruh umat insan menengadah ke arah cahya kasih yang mesra. Bagai pelaut yang karam merindukan di ufuk timur pagi merekah.
2. SalibMu, Kristus, tanda pengasihan mengangkat hati yang remuk redam, membuat dosa yang terperikan di lubuk cinta Tuhan terbenam. Di dalam Tuhan kami balik lahir, insan bernoda kini berseri, Terkuras darah suci yang mengalir di salib pada bukit Kalvari.
A man named Nicodemus to Jesus came one night. He said, “We know You’ve come from God; Your wonders show His might.” In answer, Jesus did declare, “Give heed, these words are true: You cannot see God’s kingdom come unless you’re born anew.”
Then Nicodemus questioned, “Reborn, how can this be? For surely none can to the womb return and new life see.” Jesus replied, “Flesh brings forth flesh, but like the blowing wind, The Spirit does give birth to spirit; thus man is born again.”
As Moses in the desert did lift the snake up high, The Son of Man must be raised up that men might live, not die. For God so loved this world of men, he gave his Son for us, That we might have eternal life, if we in Him do trust.
God did not send His Son to condemn the world of sin. Christ came instead to save all those who place their trust in Him. All who believe escape God’s wrath; they come into the light. But all who practice evil deeds are guilty in God’s sight.
Without the Son, all perish; the verdict is decreed. All those who fail to trust Christ’s Name condemned will ever be. Lord, give me boldness to proclaim Your message to the lost, That they might gain eternal life by looking to the cross.
Blessèd Jesus! here we stand, Met to do as Thou hast spoken; And this child, at Thy command, Now we bring to Thee, in token That to Christ it here is given; For of such shall be his heaven.
Yes! Thy warning voice is plain, And we fain would keep it duly: He who is not born again, Heart and life renewing truly, Born of water and the Spirit, Will God’s kingdom ne’er inherit.
Make it, Head, Thy member now; Shepherd, take Thy lamb and feed it; Prince of Peace, its peace be Thou; Way of Life, to Heaven, O lead it: Vine, this branch may nothing sever, Grafted firm in Thee for ever.
Now upon Thy heart it lies, What our hearts so dearly treasure; Heavenward lead our burdened sighs, Pour Thy blessing without measure; Write the name we now have given, Write it in the book of Heaven.
