A Good Friday Verse

Taken from an old hymnal…

Calvary

by W Darwood.

On Calvary’s brow my Savior died,
t’was there my Lord was crucified;
t’was on the cross He bled for me
and purchased there my pardon free.
O Calvary, dark Calvary!
Where Jesus shed his blood for me.

Mid rending rocks and darkening skies
my Savior bows his head and dies;
the opening veil reveals the way
to heaven’s joys and endless day.
O Calvary, dark Calvary!
Where Jesus shed his blood for me.

Oh Jesus, Lord, how can it be
that Thou shouldst give thy life for me,
to bear the cross and agony
in that dread hour on Calvary?
O Calvary, dark Calvary!
Where Jesus shed his blood for me.
