The Cross of Calvary

by Yee Ying Yeo © 2020

O cross of Calvary to thee I cling
My life, my love, all that I bring
I render unto Christ my Lord
All lovingly admired, adored

O cross of Calvary to thee I look
My sins and burdens all forsook
To bear the only I can bear
I worship thee in praise and prayer

O cross of Calvary to thee I gaze
Thy lovingkindness shall amaze
The dimmest portion of my mind
My heart to wonder is resigned

O cross of Calvary to thee I bring
An offering made unto my king
Who my lips to Him inspire
Songs and hymns of His desire

O cross of Calvary to thee I make
A promise that I cannot break
In pledge to love and all forsake
To follow thee this vow I take

O cross of Calvary to thee I pray
I come to thee and loving say
How great I owe to thee who died
This debt of love thee glorified

O cross of Calvary to thee I plead
For those I love I intercede
Thy grace and mercy them impart
Thy love to touch a tender heart

O cross of Calvary to thee I go
The time will come when I shall know
My living here has reached its end
I rise to thee in heaven’s land

O cross of Calvary to thee I confess
All my flaws and unworthiness
Shall be cleansed and washed away
Before thee stand on judgment day

O cross of Calvary to thee I bless
Thou whose love art blissfulness
With whom I find joy through the pain
Sweeter yet my blessing gain.
