On the cross of Calvary


    • On the cross of Calvary, 
    • Jesus died for you and me, 
    • there He shed His precious blood, 
    • that from sin we might be free. 
    • Oh, the cleansing stream doth flow, 
    • and it washes white as snow; 
    • it was for me that Jesus died, 
    • on the cross of Calvary. 

    • Clouds and darkness veiled the sky 
    • when the Lord was crucified, 
    • ‘It is finished,’ was His cry, 
    • when He bowed His head, and died, 
    • it is finished! - yes, indeed, 
    • all the world may now go free. 
    • It was for this that Jesus died, 
    • on the cross of Calvary. 

    • Oh, what wondrous, wondrous love, 
    • brought me down at Jesus‟ feet! 
    • Oh, such wondrous dying love, 
    • asks a sacrifice complete. 
    • Here I give myself to Thee, 
    • soul and body, Thine to be, 
    • it was for me Thy blood was shed, 
    • on the cross of Calvary. 

    • Take me, Lord, and seal me Thine, 
    • wholly Thine, for evermore, 
    • sweet assurance, Thou art mine, 
    • and the night of death is o‟er. 
    • Cleanse, oh, cleanse my heart from sin, 
    • make and keep me pure within! 
    • It was for this Thy blood was shed 
    • on the cross of Calvary.
