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!

The first time I heard this song was in Nigeria, at a scripture Union fellowship. It takes me back to the great work that Jesus did on the cross over 2000 years ago. Praise God He's still working in the lives of men today.

This song has really encouraged me to hold on to faith regardless of the struggles am faced with in life, it reminds me that God's grace and mercy will see His children through. His mercy is new everyday. To Him be the glory.

This hymn has stuck to me since I first heard it in 1986, two years after I got saved. It truly has been my all time favorite song.

Recently my heart has grown cold towards the Lord. Unbelief/doubt and disobedience had set in. Yet, something in me yearns for HIM, I wanted to return to HIM but didn't know how. I woke this morning singing the chorus of this great hymn in my head:

" Mercy there was great, and grace was free;

Pardon there was multiplied to me;

There my burdened soul found liberty,

At Calvary"

I had to google it and sang along. The song made much more aware of how unfair I have been the good Lord who loved me and gave it all at CALVARY. However, it also shows me the mercy, grace and pardon that are there for me. I thank You dear Lord Jesus! Have mercy on me and forgive me my Lord. Please, brothers and sisters, pray for me.
