  • Upon the rugged cross of Calvary
    Was there my blessed Savior cried
    Forgive them for they know not what they do
    Oh, sinner friend, for thee he died

    His hands are gently knocking on your door
    Outside he's pleading to come in
    His heart is breaking as he waits for you
    To wash you free from every sin

    Someday he's coming back to claim his own
    We'll fly to Heaven's golden shore
    A crown of life he gives on that glad day
    With him we'll live forever more

    Those cruel thorns they pierced my Savior's head
    The blood was flowing down his face
    In shame, forsaken there he hung and died
    Oh, sinner friend, he took you place
