Representative Text

ON the cross of Calvary,
Jesus died for you and me;
There he shed his precious blood,
That from sin we might be free.
O the cleansing stream does flow,
And it washes white as snow!
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

Refrain:
On Calvary, an Calvary!
It was for me that Jesus died
On the crass at Calvary.

2 O what wondrous, wondrous love
Brought me down at Jesus’ feet!
O such wondrous, dying love
Asks a sacrifice complete!
Here I give myself to thee,
Soul and body, thine to be;
It was for me thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

3 Take me, Jesus, I am thine,
Wholly thine, for evermore;
Blessèd Jesus, thou art mine,
Dwell within for evermore;
Cleanse, O cleanse my heart from sin,
Make and keep me pure within!
It was for this thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

4 Clouds and darkness veiled the sky
When the Lord was crucified;
It is finished! was his cry
When he bowed his head and died.
With this cry from Calvary’s tree
All the world may now go free;
It was for this that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.
