Representative Text

1 See the Savior as He goes
On His way to Calvary,
Bending 'neath our load of woes,
On His way to Calvary.

Chorus:
On the cross of Calvary He died for me,
He died for me, He died for me;
On the Cross of Calvary He died for me,
And now I'm saved and free.

2 See Him, by our sins opress'd,
On His way to Calvary,
Fainting, falling and distress'd,
On His way to Calvary. [Chorus]

3 Meekly as the Lamb of God,
On His way to Calvary,
Drinks the cup, endures the rod,
On His way to Calvary. [Chorus]

4 "It is finish'd," hear Him cry,
On the cross of Calvary,
While the rending rocks reply,
As He dies on Calvary. [Chorus]

5 Man to God is reconciled,
By His death on Calvary;
I can now become His child,
If I look to Calvary. [Chorus]
