On Calvary’s brow my Savior died
|On Calvary’s brow my Savior died
’Twas there my Lord was crucified;
’Twas on the cross He bled for me,
And purchased there my pardon free.
|O Calvary! dark Calvary!
Where Jesus shed His blood for me;
O Calvary! blest Calvary!
’Twas there my Savior died for me.
|’Mid rending rocks and darkening skies
My Savior bows His head and dies;
The opening veil reveals the way
To life divine and endless day.
|O Jesus, Lord, how can it be
That Thou shouldst give Thy life for me,
To bear the cross and agony
In that dread hour on Calvary!
