Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

390. O Calvary

1 O blessed Lamb of God so dear!
For Thou hast come my heart to cheer;
Thy blood alone hath made me free,
That cleansing stream from Calvary.

Refrain:
O Calvary, dark Calvary,
There Jesus bore the cross for me;
O Calvary, dark Calvary,
Hark! hear Him groan for you and me.

2 Thou suffering One! Thy blood was shed,
A crown of thorns was on Thy head;
Oh, Thou didst bear such pain for me,
Upon the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]

3 My gracious Lord, I will adore,
Through love He did my soul restore;
I heard Him gently calling me,
In melting tones from Calvary. [Refrain]

4 That crimson stream flows from Thy side,
O fountain great, so deep and wide;
My sins are gone, it reaches me,
That precious blood of Calvary. [Refrain]
