211. Lead Me to Calvary

1 King of my life, I crown thee now,
thine shall the glory be;
lest I forget thy thorn-crowned brow,
lead me to Calvary.

[Refrain:]
Lest I forget Gethsemane,
lest I forget thine agony,
lest I forget thy love for me,
lead me to Calvary.

2 Show me the tomb where thou wast laid,
tenderly mourned and wept;
angels in robes of light arrayed
guarded thee whilst thou slept. (Refrain)

3 Let me like Mary through the gloom,
come with a gift to thee;
show to me now the empty tomb,
lead me to Calvary. (Refrain)

4 May I be willing, Lord, to bear
daily my cross for thee;
even thy cup of grief to share,
thou hast borne all for me. (Refrain)
