Lyrics

Oh, how dark the night
That wrapped my spirit round!
Oh, how deep the woe my Savior found
When He walked across the waters of my soul,
Bade my night disperse and made me whole.

Refrain

All the way to Calvary He went for me,
He went for me, He went for me;
All the way to Calvary He went for me,
He died to set me free.

Tremblingly a sinner bowed before His face,
Naught I knew of pardon, God’s free grace;
Heard a voice so melting, Cease thy wild regret,
Jesus bought thy pardon, paid thy debt.

Refrain

Oh, ’twas wondrous love
The Savior showed for me,
When He left His throne for Calvary,
When He trod the wine press, trod it all alone,
Praise His name forever, make it known.
