187. At Calvary

1 Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucifed,
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.

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. (Chorus)

3 Now I've giv'n to Jesus everything;
Now I gladly own Him as my King;
Now my raptured soul can only sing
Of Calvary. (Chorus)

4 O, the love that drew salvation's plan!
O, the grace that brought it down to man!
O, the mighty gulf that God did span
At Calvary. (Chorus)
