At Calvary

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.
4
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 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.

This song reminds me of my youthful days back in Nigeria at depperlife. Oh Jesus You are such a wonderful Savior to my soul.

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.

I awoke this morning with the last stanza singing in my head, I had to Google the song and sing along at once!

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!

I love this song it shows us our formal self, it draws us to Him who die for us and points us the the hope of glory in Christ Jesus.

A great hymn often sung at Sunday night meeting. Brings back many happy memories of saints who are now with the Lord.

By God's word at last my sin I learned; Then I trembled at the law I had spurned, till my guilty soul imploring turned TO CALVARY!

Such a great hymn with a great message. I love it because it assures me of my salvation, the meaning of the words means more than words can say of a loving God.

An inspiring hymn that truely edifies the soul and speaks volumes in a. few words of the wonderful and eternal gift by which God reconciled man to Himself through Christ our Lord.
