1 My sins were as great as a mountain,
Tow’ring mountain,
They all disappeared in the fountain
Of Calvary.

The blood covers my sin.
It makes clean within
Through Jesus’ atonement
I’m saved every moment,
The blood covers my sin.

2 The sins of my life were so many,
Very many,
But praise God I now haven’t any
Through Calvary. [Refrain]

3 The guilt of my life was astounding,
So astounding,
Now love in my heart is abounding
From Calvary. [Refrain]

4 My life was so lonely and weary,
Very dreary,
God’s joy in my heart keeps me cheery
Through Calvary. [Refrain]
