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.@Luke 23:33

The Savior came to seek and save His lost ones,
Who had wandered far away;
To rescue them from sin, His life He offered
On Calvary’s cross one day.

Refrain

It was your sin and my sin that nailed Him to the tree,
For your sake and my sake He made salvation free;
No gift from earth’s treasure His grace e’er can measure,
But your love and my love is all He asks today.

’Twas love, unbounded love for us that led Him
O’er that lonely, thorn-strewn way;
For you and me He bore the shame and sorrow
On Calvary’s cross that day.

Refrain

Oh, hear His voice so gently now entreating,
Then no longer from Him stray;
Accept the gracious call, and leave your burden
At Calvary’s cross today.

Refrain
