Upon the Cross of Calvary



  1. 1. Upon the cross of Calvary

    They crucified our Lord

    And sealed with blood the sacrifice

    That sanctified his word.

  2. 2. Upon the cross he meekly died

    For all mankind to see

    That death unlocks the passageway

    Into eternity.

  3. 3. Upon the cross our Savior died,

    But, dying, brought new birth

    Through resurrection’s miracle

    To all the sons of earth.
