The Cross of Calvary

Representative Text

1 It’s not ‘mid scenes of revel
My heart delights to be;
But it’s where my Saviour suffered—
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
But it’s where my Saviour suffered—
The Cross of Calvary.

2 O the matchless love that bought me,
O bounds that set me free,
Shout glory unto glory,
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
Shout glory unto glory,
The Cross of Calvary.

3 When Satan’s hosts pursue me,
Where think ye I should flee?
Unto this blessed refuge,
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
Unto this blessed refuge,
The Cross of Calvary.

4 Thus forever let me linger
Where Christ gives liberty;
And twine my heart-strings round it—
The Cross of Calvary.

The Cross once raised for me,
The Cross once raised for thee;
And twine my heart-strings round it—
The Cross of Calvary.
