From Captive to Calvary
Tremendous love flowing from Calvary is mine
You hear my soul asking my sinful nature to refine
Take all that is unlike You away from me
That a greater path to holiness I would see
Stained with sin I am
Crimson tide of Calvary sets my captive spirit free
Blood of our Saviour who is crucified
Tried, mocked, scorned, rejected, despised, beaten
Betrayed by Judas, denied by His followers
Crown of thorns put upon His head
Cheap Roman vinegar wine instead of water
By a Roman soldier He is fed
How is it God should love you so?
Why would He take time to love you?
Because we are all God’s children
I pray you see
No matter what you have done
Today, you can feel the Son
If you would ask forgiveness for all your sin
Let Him come and dwell within
Allow Him to be your guide
Through storms and blue skies
His peace in you would abide
Knowing He is always by your side
