THEY WERE WALKING MY LORD UP CALVARY'S HILL
(A) On the cross as He hung and in (D) shame was for- (A) saken,
As (D) they drove the (A) nails in His hands and His (E7) feet,
As (A) death closed his eyes, His (D) cries went to (A) heaven,
Oh! (D) Father for- (A) give them I (E7) hear Him re- (A) peat.
One (D) morning past day break, as the crowd slowly (A) gathered,
Like a sheep He was humble, to His Father's own (E7) will,
So (D)sad was His face that, the birds stopped their (A) singing,
They were walking my Lord up (E7) Calvary's (A) hill.
(A) In a tomb He was laid but (D) death could not (A) hurt Him,
He was (D) God's only (A) son in this world be- (E7) low,
On the (A) cross He fulfilled the (D) plan of sal- (A) vation,
I (D) want to thank (A) Jesus for He's (E7) coming a- (A) gain.
