ON the cross of Calvary

ON the cross of Calvary,
Jesus died for you and me;
There he shed his precious blood,
That from sin we might be free.
O the cleansing stream does flow,
And it washes white as snow!
It was for me that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

 O what wondrous, wondrous love
Brought me down at Jesus’ feet!
O such wondrous, dying love
Asks a sacrifice complete!
Here I give myself to thee,
Soul and body, thine to be;
It was for me thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

Take me, Jesus, I am thine,
Wholly thine, for evermore;
Blessèd Jesus, thou art mine,
Dwell within for evermore;
Cleanse, O cleanse my heart from sin,
Make and keep me pure within!
It was for this thy blood was shed
On the cross of Calvary.

Clouds and darkness veiled the sky
When the Lord was crucified;
It is finished! was his cry
When he bowed his head and died.
With this cry from Calvary’s tree
All the world may now go free;
It was for this that Jesus died
On the cross of Calvary.

“My God, My God..” Who can know the depth of His agony? Of His desolation? Humiliated, jeered by vicious killers, He willingly died for His people. It is finished but it is not over. For He will return with a rod of iron and one way or another, every knee shall bow to King Jesus.
