Refrain:
Calvary, Calvary,
Calvary, Calvary,
Calvary, Calvary,
surely he died on Calvary.

1 Every time I think about Jesus,
every time I think about Jesus,
every time I think about Jesus,
surely he died on Calvary. [Refrain]

2 Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Surely he died on Calvary. [Refrain]

3 Don’t you hear him calling his Father?
Don’t you hear him calling his Father?
Don’t you hear him calling his Father?
Surely he died on Calvary. [Refrain]

4 Don’t you hear him say, “It is finished!”
Don’t you hear him say, “It is finished!”
Don’t you hear him say, “It is finished!”
Surely he died on Calvary. [Refrain]

5 Jesus died for my salvation.
Jesus died for my salvation.
Jesus died for my salvation.
Surely he died on Calvary. [Refrain]
