"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary,

PLEASE NOTE - ONLY THE CHORUS IS IN OUR HYMNAL
          I look at the cross upon Calvary,
          And oh, what a wonder divine,
          To think of the wealth it holds for me -
          The riches of Heaven are mine.

            Chorus
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            Neath thy shadow I'll ever abide;
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            'Twas there Jesus suffered and died

          I find at the cross blessed victory,
          And grace for each step of my way.
          To the fount of God's love is flowing free,
          And sweeter it grows day by day.

            Chorus
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            Neath thy shadow I'll ever abide;
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            'Twas there Jesus suffered and died

          The cross is my hope for eternity,
          No merit have I of my own;
          The shed blood of Christ my only plea -
          My trust is in Jesus alone.

            Chorus
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            Neath thy shadow I'll ever abide;
            Blessed Calvary!  Precious Calvary!
            'Twas there Jesus suffered and died
