#121: Blessed Calvary!

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

I look at the cross upon Calvary,

And O what a wonder divine!

To think of the wealth it holds for me —

The riches of heaven are mine.

CHORUS

Blessed Calvary! Precious Calvary!

‘Neath thy shadow I’ll ever abide;

Blessed Calvary! Precious Calvary!

‘Twas there Jesus Suffered and died.

2

I find at the cross blessed victory,

And grace for each step of the way;

The fount of God’s love is flowing free,

And sweeter it grows day by day.

CHORUS

3

The cross is my hope for eternity —

No merit have I of my own;

The shed blood of Christ my only plea —

My trust is in Jesus alone.

CHORUS
