1 On Cal’vry’s hill of sorrow
Where sin’s demands were paid,
And rays of hope for tomorrow
Across our path were laid.
I see a crimson stream of blood.
It flows from Calvary,
Its waves which reach the throne of God,
Are sweeping over me.
2 Today no condemnation
Abides to turn away
My soul from His salvation,
He’s in my heart to stay. [Refrain]
3 When gloom and sadness whisper,
You’ve sinned, no use to pray,
I look away to Jesus,
And He tells me to say: [Refrain]
4 And when we reach the portal
Where life forever reigns,
The ransomed hosts grand final
Will be this glad refrain. [Refrain]
