Representative Text

ON Calvary’s brow my Saviour died,
‘Twas there my Lord was crucified;
‘Twas on the cross he bled for me,
And purchased there my pardon free.

Refrain:
It was on the cross he shed his blood,
It was there he was crucified;
But he rose again, and he lives in my heart
Where all is peace and perfect love.

Refrain:
O Calvary, dark Calvary,
Where Jesus shed his blood for me.
O Calvary, dark Calvary:
Speak to my heart of Calvary.

2 ‘Mid rending rocks and darkening skies,
My Saviour bows his head and dies;
The opening veil reveals the way
To Heaven’s joys and endless day.

3 O Jesus, Lord, how can it be
That thou shouldst give thy life for me,
To bear the cross and agony
In that dread hour on Calvary?
