Up Calvary’s mountain one dreadful morn

Walked Christ my Savior, weary and worn

Facing for sinners death on the cross

That He might save them from endless loss

 

Blessed Redeemer, precious Redeemer

Seems now I see Him on Calvary’s tree

Wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading

Blind and unheeding, dying for me

 

“Father, forgive them, ” my Savior prayed

Even while His lifeblood flowed fast away

Praying for sinners while in such woe

No one but Jesus ever loved so

 

Dying for me

 

Oh how I love Him, Savior and friend

How can my praises ever find end

Through years unnumbered on Heaven’s shore

My songs shall praise Him forevermore
