86. King of My Life (Lead Me to Calvary)

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.

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. [Refrain]

3 Let me, like Mary, through the gloom,
come with a gift to thee;
show to me now the empty tomb,
lead me to Calvary. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
