Representative Text

1 O Thou bleeding Lamb of God,
Thou the path of death hast trod,
Pouring out Thy love for me,
At the place called Calvary.

Wonderful place called Calvary,
Wonderful place called Calvary;
Love, redeeming love, I see,
At the place called Calvary.

2 Flowing here the crimson tide,
Fount of blessing deep and wide,
Saviour, wash away my sin,
Bring Thy cleansing power within. [Refrain]

3 O the cruel pain He bore,
When the crown of thorns He wore;
Sinner, come; for you and me
Jesus died on Calvary. [Refrain]

4 Come, oh, come, for He'll receive
All who on His name believe;
Find salvation full and free,
At the place called Calvary. [Refrain]
