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."

          There are things, as we travel this earth's shifting sand,
          That transcend all the reason of man;
          But the things that matter the most in this world,
          They can never be held in our hand.

            Chorus
            I believe in a hill called Mount Calv'ry
            I'll believe whatever the cost;
            And when time has surrendered and earth is no more,
            I'll sting cling to that old rugged cross.

          I believe that the Christ who was slain on that cross
          Has the power to change lives today;
          For He changed me completely - a new life is mine,
          That is why by the cross I will stay.

            Chorus
            I believe in a hill called Mount Calv'ry
            I'll believe whatever the cost;
            And when time has surrendered and earth is no more,
            I'll sting cling to that old rugged cross.

          I believe that this life with its great mysteries
          Surely someday will come to an end;
          But faith will conquer the darkness and death,
          And will lead me at last to my Friend.

            Chorus
            I believe in a hill called Mount Calv'ry
            I'll believe whatever the cost;
            And when time has surrendered and earth is no more,
            I'll sting cling to that old rugged cross.
