1 Have you been to the cross where the Lord Jesus suffered?
Have you been to Calvary?
Have you been to the place of redemption for sinners?
Have you been to Calvary?

Chorus:
It was there on Calvary,
God's dear Son lay down His life for you.
While there's time, don't delay;
Place your faith in Christ Jesus,
Turn your eyes now to Calvary.

2 You can search, you can buy and try everything manmade,
But it cannot satisfy:
It is Christ, only Christ, who gives life more abundant,
And He calls from Calvary.[Chorus]

3 While the Spirit's clear voice can be heard softly pleading,
Give your life to Jesus now:
Trusting faith is the way to have life everlasting,
And He calls from Calvary.[Chorus]
