Years I spent in vanity and pride
Caring not my Lord was crucified
Knowing not it was for me He died on Calvary
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
Now I've given to Jesus everything
Now I gladly own Him as my King
Now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary!
O, the love that drew salvation's plan!
O, the grace that brought it down to man!
O, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!
