At Calvary

At Calvary

by William R. Newell, 1895

1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
On Calvary.

* Refrain:
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty
At Calvary.

2. By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned
To Calvary.

3. Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing
Of Calvary!

4. Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
At Calvary!

  1. Sarah,

    We sang this at church yesterday. The sermon was the gospel. I rejoiced all through both. Christians need to here the gospel too, me foremost. 🙂

    In Christ

  2. My pastor never preaches a sermon where he doesn’t incorporate the Gospel into it somehow…reminds me of Paul Washer! Please continue to pray for our little church.
