1 I stand beholding Calvary’s cross
Where Christ, my Savior, died;
I see Him hanging on the tree,
For sinners crucified.

Refrain:
What a precious Savior,
Great and glorious Savior,
What a precious Savior is Christ the Lord;
What a precious Savior,
Great and glorious Savior,
What a precious Savior is Christ the Lord.

2 What grief and pain was Thine, O Christ!
As thus Thy life was giv’n
To save us from the pow’r of death,
And win our souls for heav’n. [Refrain]

3 What wondrous love was thus made known,
How rich and free His grace!
That gave the Father’s only Son
To save a ruined race. [Refrain]

4 I humbly bow on Calvary,
Accept His grace so free;
The Savior’s sacrifice and love,
At last has conquered me. [Refrain]
