1 Can I forget, can I forget
The place where Jesus died,
Where on the cross of Calvary
My Lord was crucified?
Can I forget his dying groans,
His agonizing pray’r?
O soul of mine, it was my sins
Which helped to nail him there.
O wonderful cross of Calvary!
Wonderful cross of Calvary!
My hope of salvation hangs on thee,
O wonderful, wonderful cross!
2 His lonely watch can I forget,
When, in his agony
There fell great drops of bloody sweat
In dark Gethsemane?
Betrayed and scourged, to slaughter led,
To cancel sin’s great debt;
O basest of ingratitude,
If ever I forget! [Refrain]
3 Can I forget? no, while I breathe,
His goodness I’ll proclaim;
Salvation for a ruined race
Thro’ Jesus’ precious name.
When I, a sinner saved by grace,
Before His throne shall be,
I’ll praise Him, and remember still
The cross of Calvary. [Refrain]
