Calvary's Hill

(Instrumental midi file arranged by Peter Wolmarans)

Listen to "Calvary's Hill" (RealAudio).


I walked up Calvary's hill today,

I thought of Jesus,

And the way He shed His blood and died for Me,

Of how He bore my sins that day,

For with each nail, He seemed to say,

My love for you will never fail,

So walk with me.

--

It was on Calvary's hill today,

I felt His presence,

His love and peace within my heart,

It over flowed,

He faced death there all alone,

Took my place,

His love was shown,

Gave His life on Calvary,

For you and me.

--

( Chorus )

I wasn't even born when Jesus died there,

But He knew that I would fail and fall in sin,

Yes, He died for me that day,

So that someday I could say,

He took all my guilt away,

And washed me clean.

--

When I'm on Calvary's hill today,

I feel His kindness,

For I caused my God to suffer, bleed and die,

I deserted Him that day,

Ran and hid and would not stay,

While they nailed Him to the cross,

And there He died.

--

Please come to Calvary's hill today,

You'll still find Jesus,

He will lift your heavy burdens,

Ease your pain,

You can start your life anew,

He paid the debt, It's up to you,

Let Him wipe away your tears,

Leave all your shame.

--

( Chorus #2)

You weren't even born when Jesus died there,

But He knew that you would fail and fall in sin,

Yes, He died for you that day,

So that someday you could say,

He took all my guilt away,

And washed me clean.

--

Tag

Yes, He took all my guilt away,

And washed me clean.
