There was One Who was willing to die in my stead,
That a soul so unworthy might live;
And the path to the cross He was willing to tread,
All the sins of my life to forgive.

Refrain  They are nailed to the cross,
            They are nailed to the cross,
            O how much He was willing to bear!
            With what anguish and loss Jesus went to the cross!
            But He carried my sins with Him there.

2. He is tender and loving and patient with me,
While He cleanses my heart of the dross;
But “there’s no condemnation”—I know I am free,
For my sins are all nailed to the cross.

3. I will cling to my Savior and never depart—
I will joyfully journey each day,
With a song on my lips and a song in my heart,
That my sins have been taken away.

Grant Colfax Tullar was born this date 8/5/1869 at Bolton, Connecticut.  Ulysses Grant was president of the United States and Schuyler Colfax vice-president hence the high-sounding name. His mother died when he was two and he, raised by less than best relatives, was found working (age ten) at a woolen mill.  After a move toHartford, he worked in a shoe store.  When Tullar  was nineteen he was converted at a Methodist camp meeting near Waterbury, CT.

After a year as a pastor he turned music evangelist.  In 1893 he and Isaac H Meredith founded the Tullar-Meredith Publishing Co. (New York) publishing Sunday school literature and church music.  It is to Tuller’s music we sing “Face to Face with Christ My Savior,” “Every Work for Jesus Will Be Blest,” the above song, and others.  Tullar died 5/20/1950 at Ocean Grove, New Jer­sey.

“Only Trust Him”

 

Come, every soul by sin oppressed;
There’s mercy with the Lord,
And He will surely give you rest
By trusting in His Word.

Refrain

Only trust Him, only trust Him,
Only trust Him now;
He will save you, He will save you,
He will save you now.

2.

For Jesus shed His precious blood
Rich blessings to bestow;
Plunge now into the crimson flood
That washes white as snow.

3.

Yes, Jesus is the truth, the way,
That leads you into rest;
Believe in Him without delay
And you are fully blessed.

4.

Come, then, and join this holy band,
And on to glory go
To dwell in that celestial land
Where joys immortal flow.

5.

O Jesus, blessèd Jesus, dear,
I’m coming now to Thee;
Since Thou hast made the way so clear
And full salvation free.
