At Calvary
Words by William E. Newell

Luke 23:33
"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary,
there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand,
and the other on the left."

          Years I spent in vanity and pride,
          Caring not my Lord was crucified,
          Knowing not it was for me He died on Calvary.

            Chorus
            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.

            Chorus
            Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
            Pardon there was multiplied to me;
            There my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary.

          Now I've given to Jesus everything,
          Now I gladly own Him as my King,
          Now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary!

            Chorus
            Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
            Pardon there was multiplied to me;
            There my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary.

          Oh, the love that drew salvation's plan!
          Oh, the grace that bro't it down to man!
          Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!

            Chorus
            Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
            Pardon there was multiplied to me;
            There my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary.
