At Calvary

1
Years I spent 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.
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!

This song has a very special meaning to me. It is one I really enjoy playing and singing. Mercy and grace was given to me in 1952 at Calvary Baptist Church in Nashville. A day I will never forget. I had struggled with the holy spirit for weeks under conviction even during a revival with my family during a 2-week revival service prior to this time. It was a cold and snowy Sunday morning I will never forget when I asked Jesus into my heart. So I love when they sing about at Calvary because that's where it happened.

Thinking back this morning as I woke up of that “moment in time” that Jesus saved me from my sins. I was dying in sun and Jesus gave me life. I am so thankful for that day over 43 years ago that my burdened soul found freedom at Calvary! 🙏 it’s as vivid in my mind today as it was the day I first saw the Light and came to know that and understand that Jesus died for me!! I never knew it was for me. This is actually one of the first hymns I heard in the my church after I was saved. I would weep whenever we sang it and am always stirred by it. All three stanzas tell the story of my life. Everytime I hear or sing it I give thanks to God for spanning that mighty gulf for me! 🙏 that’s why I love him so. And now I’m safe within the arms of God! Thanking God today for Jesus and for the love that drew salvation’s plan! Lord Jesus, I love you! You are our great Saviour! Oh saints of God, let us remember what a great salvation we have!! 🙌🏼

We sang this song today in RCCG Divine Touch Parish, Yoruba Road, GRA Ilorin. It reassuringly melodious. May we not miss heaven having known what He did for us at Calvary. God bless you.

Years I spent 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.

Good morning,

This hymn came to me this morning while I was performing my work. Isn’t our Lord so sweet and precious?

I thank Him for me reminding me of His sacrifice and how I was once oblivious to His concern for me. Praise Him for His eternal salvation. Thank you Lord Jesus. I take you as my King today! Hallelujah!!!

I am watching Donnie Swaggart at this moment talk about this song.. the writer of the song's father pleaded time after time with the Moody Bible institute to accept his wayward son.. each time he was denied because he was not a born again believer.. after several requests to the Moody Bible institute he was finally admitted.. and the Lord changed his life and he penned these lyrics and the music teacher there wrote the music..
