When first I looked at Calvary's cross, I saw God's wrath displayed; I saw how much He hated sin, and frightened...ran away. For I knew that I was sinful, too; Deserving death as well, I did not know which way to turn to get away from hell. I looked again to Calvary's cross and saw God's love displayed; For Christ was dying in my place, my sins on Him were laid. He beckoned me to come to Him, not run as I had done before; I saw Him as my dying Lord, and claimed him as Savior evermore! One more look to Calvary's cross Caused all self to die in me; Twas not my Savior dying there, I saw myself upon that tree! YES! He died that I might not live as the man I used to be! I'm dead ! I dies on Calvary's cross Now Jesus lives on in me!!
