Verse 1: On Calv’ry’s brow my Savior died, ‘Twas there my Lord was crucified; ‘Twas on the cross He bled for me, And purchased there my pardon free.
Verse 2: Mid rending rocks and dark’ning skies, My Savior bows His head and dies; The op’ning vail reveals the way To heaven’s joys and endless days.
Verse 3: O, Jesus, Lord, how can it be, That Thou shouldst give Thy life for me, To bear the cross and agony,In that dread hour on Calvary.
Chorus: O, Calvary! dark Calvary! Where Jesus shed His blood for me; for me; O, Calvary! blest Calvary! ‘Twas there my Savior died for me.
