1. O ye who have wandered in sorrow away,
There’s pardon on Calvary;
A pardon to sinners is offered today;
There’s pardon on Calvary.

There’s pardon on Calvary,
There’s pardon on Calvary;
A pardon of love from the Father above,
A pardon on Calvary.

2. Since Jesus has died on the cross for us all,
There’s pardon on Calvary;
Your hearts can be cleansed if you come at His call;
There’s pardon on Calvary. [Refrain]

3. His hand is held out in compassion to you,
There’s pardon on Calvary;
Your long wasted lives He in love will renew;
There’s pardon on Calvary. [Refrain]

4. O hasten to lay all your sin at His feet,
There’s pardon on Calvary;
Come now and accept His redemption complete;
There’s pardon on Calvary. [Refrain]
