53. It Was for Me

1 On the cross of Calvary,
Jesus died for you and me;
There He shed His precious blood,
That from sin we might be free.
Oh, the cleansing stream doeth flow,
And it washes white as snow;
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

Refrain:
It was for me,
For even me;
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

2 Oh, what wondrous, wondrous love
Bro’t me down at Jesus’ feet!
Oh, such wondrous, dying love
Asks a sacrifice complete;
Here I give myself to Thee,
Soul and body Thine to be;
It was for me Thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

3 Take me, Jesus, I am Thine,
Wholly Thine forevermore;
Blessed Jesus, Thou art mine,
Dwell within forevermore;
Cleanse, O cleanse my heart from sin,
Make and keep me pure within;
It was for this Thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

4 Clouds and darkness veiled the sky
When the Lord was crucified;
“It is finished!” was His cry
When He bowed His head and died.
It is finished, it is finished;
All the world may now go free;
It was for this that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]
