1 Up Calv'ry's mountain one dreadful morn
Walked Christ, my Savior, weary and worn;
Facing for sinners death on the cross,
That He might save them from endless loss.
Seems now I see Him on Calvary's tree;
Wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading--
Blind and unheeding-- dying for me!
2 "Father forgive them!" thus did He pray,
E'en while His lifeblood flowed fast away;
Praying for sinners while in such woe--
No one but Jesus ever loved so.[Chorus]
3 O how I love Him, Savior and Friend,
How can my praises ever find end?
Through years unnumbered on heaven's shore,
My tongue shall praise Him forevermore.[Chorus]
