Today, I went down to the place where I used to go
Today, I saw the same old crowd I knew before
And when they asked me what had happened, I tried to tell them,
Thanks to Calvary, I don't come here anymore.

Thanks to Calvary I am not the man (dad) I used to be
Thanks to Calvary things are different than before.
And as the tears ran down my face I tried to tell them (him)(her),
Thanks to Calvary, I don't come (live) here anymore.

Then we went down to the house where we used to live,
My little boy (girl) ran behind the door, like so many times before;
And I said "Son (Honey) you don't need to be afraid, you've got a new Daddy now,
(And I said, "Son (Honey) never fear, you've got a new Mommy here,)
Thanks to Calvary we don't live here anymore.

Thanks to Calvary I am not the man (dad) I used to be
Thanks to Calvary things are different than before.
And as the tears ran down my face I tried to tell them (him)(her),
Thanks to Calvary, I don't come (live) here anymore.

Thanks to Calvary I am not the man (dad) I used to be
Thanks to Calvary things are different than before.
And as the tears ran down my face I tried to tell them (him)(her),
Thanks to Calvary, I don't come (live) here anymore.

Thanks to Calvary, we don't live here anymore.

    This man name was George Yonce. He truly loved God and showed thru his singing, his eyes and bowing his head in humbling spirit. What a sight to watch and sing along with him. I love Gaithers Homecoming shows..my fav!!

    Now I can't open the video..etc.. So google and then type in George Yonce and Thanks to Calvary, I don't live here anymore. Then you can watch the singing I hope...

    Listen to this song...awesome singing about a man who no longer hangs out with the crowd. He tells them thanks to Calvary..he is a changed man! Jesus is his Lord and Savior!! You can look up the lyrics or words to the song and understand the song meaning.

    Relaying to my oldest son, who's now 31, of my failures.faults, feelings & decisions i made as a mother, who was saved & seeking god amidst divorce where 4 children were involved, all the tribulations of life: rejection, disappointments, regrets & heartaches; yet we have the power to forgive ourselves , as well as others, go on & choose life that we may live & teach our children's children the bible way, if we stay saved . Pray, turn from our wicked ways-seek god & his righteousness. -regina thompson, 16 june'012

    For he gave himself in sacrifice at calvary, jesus is able to make us free from sins. He's the only one who can give us a new heart, a new life. He can change our sorrows and mourning to joys and happiness if we invite him in our life.
