Since the world began there has been God
Many things and thoughts have changed
About the dying of our Lord
Oh, the pain that He went through for you and me
On a hill called Calvary

On Calvary my Jesus died
He died for you and for me
He died to save a wretch undone like me
Oh like me

On Calvary Jesus died
He died for you and for me
He died to save a wretch undone like me
Oh, like me

Each time I sin
I know I've crucified my Lord again
No, I've crucified Him again
If I'm lost, I have only myself to blame
Only myself to blame

It was Calvary where they crucified my Lord
Yes, it was Calvary where He purchased my salvation
It was Calvary, Calvary where my Jesus died just for me

It was Calvary where they crucified my Lord
Yes, it was Calvary where He purchased my salvation
It was Calvary, Calvary where my Jesus died
He laid there never said a [Incomprehensible] word

It was Calvary where He saved a wretch undone just like me
He didn't have to do it but He did
It was Calvary where He hung, bled and died just for me
For me, for me, for me, yes, He did it for me

I was sinking deep in sin far from a peaceful shore
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more
But the Master of the sea heard my despairing cry
From the waters He lifted me now safe am I

Oh, when He died He did it for me
When He laid his life down He did it for me
For me, I thank you, Lord, You did it for me
