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!

This is the song through which the message of salvation was preached to me and I gave my life and my love to Jesus Christ. I always recall the topic of the message and this song. Thank You Jesus.

I love this song. I remember sitting in church and God spoke to me, telling me that many as sat in Church not taking Him serious and finally came to the conclusion of their lives that this song brought them to reality that it is not just for those outside the Chirch but, inside as well. Taking God serious is living for eternity, hallelujah!

What a great, old hymn missing in most churches today. As I listen to it now at past 2.00 am, I feel this deep desire for JESUS and long to witness Him to lost multitudes. Mercy there was great and grace was free! Hallelujah!
