Fairest of all the earth be­side,
Chiefest of all un­to Thy bride,
Fullness di­vine in Thee I see,
Beautiful Man of Cal­va­ry!


That Man of Cal­va­ry
Has won my heart from me,
And died to set me free,
Blest Man of Cal­va­ry!

Granting the sin­ner life and peace,
Granting the cap­tive sweet re­lease,
Shedding His blood to make us free,
Merciful Man of Cal­va­ry!


Giving the gifts ob­tained for men,
Pouring out love be­yond our ken,
Giving us spot­less pu­ri­ty,
Bountiful Man of Cal­va­ry!


Comfort of all my earth­ly way,
Jesus I’ll meet Thee some sweet day;
Center of glo­ry Thee I’ll see,
Wonderful Man of Cal­va­ry!
