Christian lyrics with chords for guitar, banjo, mandolin etc.
Words and music: Avis B Christiansen and Harry Dixon Loes
Up Calvary's mountain, one dreadful morn,
Walked Christ my Saviour, weary and worn;
Facing for sinners death on the cross,
E B7 E
That He might save them from endless loss.
Blessed Redeemer! Precious Redeemer!
Seems I now see Him on Calvary's tree;
Wounded and bleeding, for sinners pleading,
E E7 E
Blind and unheeding-dying for me!
"Father forgive them!" thus did He pray,
E'en while His lifeblood flowed fast away;
Praying for sinners while in such woe
No one but Jesus ever loved so.
O how I love Him, Saviour and Friend,
How can my praises ever find end!
Through years unnumbered on heaven's shore,
My tongue shall praise Him forevermore.
