Upon the Cross of Calvary

Hymns of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


1. Upon the cross of Calvary

They crucified our Lord

And sealed with blood the sacrifice

That sanctified his word.

2. Upon the cross he meekly died

For all mankind to see

That death unlocks the passageway

Into eternity.

3. Upon the cross our Savior died,

But, dying, brought new birth

Through resurrection’s miracle

To all the sons of earth.
