At Calvary

William R. Newell, 1895

Verse 1
Years I spend in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died, On Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary.

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

Verse 3
Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus ev’rything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing, Of Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary.

Verse 4
Oh, the love that drew salvations’s plan!
Oh, the grace that bro’t it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span, At Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary.
