“In Him we have redemption through His blood.” – Ephesians 1:7

At Calvary

Verse 1:
Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
On Calvary.

Chorus:
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty,
At Calvary.

Verse 2:
By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned
To Calvary.

Verse 3:
Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus ev’rything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King;
Now my raptured soul can only sing
Of Calvary.

Verse 4:
Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
At Calvary.
