Representative Text

1 O Calvary, O Calvary,
How oft we think of thee!
‘Twas on thy brown our Saviour died
To set the captive free.

O cruel cross of Calvary!
O wondrous love of God!
O blest Redeemer crucified,
We’ll spread Thy truth abroad;
O blest Redeemer crucified;
We’ll spread Thy truth abroad!

2 O Calvary, O Calvary,
What mem’ries round thee cling!
O blest Redeemer of mankind,
Thy praises we will sing. [Chorus]

3 O Calvary, O Calvary,
Tho’ there our Lord was slain,
The precious blood He freely shed
Will cleanse our ev’ry stain! [Chorus]

4 O Calvary, O Calvary,
O may that memory
Our souls inspire to sing His praise
Thro’ all eternity! [Chorus]
