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!

We have a non denominational church here and it feels great to have a session of the Ancient and Modern Revised Hymns. its like being young again and feels the spirit moving. Mat His name be Glorified forever. And thanks for the tunes.

'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!'

Truly Wonderful! These old hymns carry so much theological truth, depth and richness.

I belong to a baptist church & have for quite some time, and this song= At Calvary, is one of the songs that is in our songbook/hymnal. I enjoy singing this old hymn because it makes me feel good.



Singing this hymn exposed me of my lack of appreciation of our Lord's death on Calvary. Hallelujah, He died for me and you in such a personal way! May our hearts be full of praise for His crucifixion. Now through this death, we are forgiven and can receive boundless stores of mercy and grace!

What a beautiful song. I am moved on hearing and reading the lyrics. Praise be to God on high.

Well, it was a song of experience in an hour of my life. Quite hard to explain, but it trained my reluctant will to hush at His cross. Amen.

David Evans

It tells me of all I have in Jesus. Grace, mercy, love, pardon, liberty, hope, forgiveness. What a wonderful Saviour we have. What a great God we serve. Praise the Lord. PS This is one of the songs I would like to be sung at my funeral.

It was my grandmother's favorite song. She is with my Lord but I miss her so much.
