Lead Me to Calvary
Words by Elisha A. Hoffman

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."

          King of my life, I crown Thee now,
          Thine shall the glory be;
          Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow,
          Lead me to Calvary.

            Chorus
            Lest I forget Gethsemane;
            Lest I forget Thine agony;
            Lest I forget Thy love for me,
            Lead me to Calvary.

          Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid,
          Tenderly mourned and wept;
          Angels in robes of light arrayed,
          Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept.

            Chorus
            Lest I forget Gethsemane;
            Lest I forget Thine agony;
            Lest I forget Thy love for me,
            Lead me to Calvary.

          Let me like Mary, through the gloom,
          Come with a gift to Thee;
          Show to me now the empty tomb,
          Lead me to Calvary.

            Chorus
            Lest I forget Gethsemane;
            Lest I forget Thine agony;
            Lest I forget Thy love for me,
            Lead me to Calvary.

          May I be willing, Lord, to bear,
          Daily my cross for Thee;
          Even Thy cup of grief to share,
          Thou hast borne all for me

            Chorus
            Lest I forget Gethsemane;
            Lest I forget Thine agony;
            Lest I forget Thy love for me,
            Lead me to Calvary.
