At Calvary

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.
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.
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.
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!

Thanks for your helping of posting lyrics for hymns. I love gospel hymns and songs and I do visit your site whenever I need lyrics for my favorite hymns. I love this particular hymn that reminds me of Christ’s sacrifice for me on the cross. I prayed that His sacrifice will not be in vain over me and you in Jesus’ name.

I praise You Lord Jesus for Your sacrifice for my sins..You paid my deBt at Calvary to give me eternal life with You, my Saviour!!!

There is no such country as "Disputed Territory!!!" The only ones who call it such are the ignorant and unGodly." I'm sure you know that. Israel has been described clearly in the Word of God and it will occupy all that He has said it will. Stick around and see the outcome.

At Calvary is beautiful, but needs to be played on a melodious instrument such as an organ.

My life time is for God. The hymn reminds me to remember Calvary and totally focus on God.

I woke up with this song in my head. This is our precious Gospel: that God in His mercy sent Jesus to die for sinful me, on Calvary's tree and that He rose again on the third day!! My sins are forgiven, I have been set free. This is the Good News,

"Pardon there was multiplied for me, There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary"

Thank You Jesus for the plan of salvation and for saving me. Thank You for the Holy Spirit and how He inspires men to write wonderful lyrics like this. Keep me until Your return oh Lord. Help me to be a light to this dark world, thank You Father.
