#124: Lead Me to Calvary

Standard

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

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.

CHORUS

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.

CHORUS

3

Let me like Mary, thru the gloom,

Come with a gift to Thee;

Show to me now the empty tomb —

Lead me to Calvary.

CHORUS

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.

CHORUS
