Representative Text

1 Fairest of all the earth beside,
Chiefest of all unto Thy bride,
Fulness divine in Thee I see;
Beautiful Man of Calvary!

That Man who died on Calvary
Has cleansed my heart and set me free;
Sin’s power no more can fetter me
Since Jesus died on Calvary.

2 Drinking a dire and dreadful cup,
Crucified Jesus lifted up,
Bearing our guilt and misery;
Sorrowful Man of Calvary! [Refrain]

3 Granting the sinner life and peace,
Granting the captive sweet release,
Shedding His blood to make us free;
Merciful Man of Calvary! [Refrain]

4 Gather’d with Thee eternally,
Sharing Thy love by glassy sea,
Like Thee forever I shall be;
Glorified Man of Calvary! [Refrain]
