King of my life, I crown Thee now

King of my life, I crown Thee now,
  Thine shall the glory be;
Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow,
  Lead me to Calvary.
  Lest I forget Gethsemane;
Lest I forget Thine agony;
Lest I forget Thy love for me,
  Lead me to Calvary.
Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid,
  Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
  Guarded Thee while Thou slept.
Let me like Mary, through the gloom,
  Come with a gift to Thee;
Show to me now the empty tomb,
  Lead me to Calvary.
May I be willing, Lord, to bear
  Daily my cross for Thee;
Even Thy cup of grief to share,
  Thou hast borne all for me.
Fill me, O Lord, with Thy desire
  For all that know not Thee;
Then touch my lips with holy fire,
  To speak of Calvary.

It had been a discouraging day and the Lord put the lyrics "lead me to Calvary" on my heart and I searched for the rest of the lyrics and music which led me to hymnal. net. It was a pleasant encouragement. Thank you.

After reading the crucification passage from Luke 23 and the post-resurrection encounters in Luke 24, the Holy Spirit refreshed me with the words from this song, which I've come to love and cherish... It helped me feel the warmth and nearness of our Lord in a real sense... Christian, Don't forget to remember Him.

An old hymn but million worth. Today after a long time heard this and refreshed me.

If we who confess to be Christians can be brought to the full understanding of what CHRIST did at Calvary. No one would have a reason to complain over anything. Every trial we face is GOD's love to perfect our characters. Paul wrote "We are troubled on every side, YET not distressed; we are perplexed, BUT not in despair; Persecuted, BUT not forsaken; cast down, BUT not destroyed. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, YET the inward man is renewed day by day. For our LIGHT afflictions, which is but for a MOMENT, worketh for us a far more exceeding and ETERNAL WEIGHT of glory. While we look not at the things which are seen but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen aare etetnal." 2 Cor.4:7-9, 16-18 so I crown the KING of my life.... "Thine shall the glory be!" what I experience here as the greatest trials cannot be compared with what JESUS went through at Calvary. What kind of love was that displayed on the cross and lifted high on a hill.
