Lyrics

Of all in earth or Hea­ven,
The dearest name to me,
Is the matchless name of Je­sus,
The Christ of Cal­va­ry.

Refrain

The Christ of Cal­va­ry,
The dearest name to me,
Is the matchless name of Je­sus,
The Christ of Cal­va­ry.

I cannot help but love Him,
And tell His love to me;
For He became my ransom,
The Christ of Cal­va­ry.

Refrain

I could not live without Him,
His love is life to me;
My blood-bought life I give Him,
The Christ of Cal­va­ry.
