The Glories Of Calvary – Sunday Songs

Leave a comment

The Glories Of Calvary is an uptempo song with strong lyrics that has been around for a while.
A nice composition by Steve and Vikki Cooke.
I’ve been meaning to use it, but haven’t gotten around to it.
I think it would work as a communion hymn.
Sheet music resources are available free at Sovereign Grace Music.

It seems to have grown a little bridge on this recording by Norton Hall.

The lyrics.
Verse 1.
Lord, You’re calling me to come
And behold the wondrous cross
To explore the depths of grace
That came to me at such a cost
Where Your boundless love
Conquered my boundless sin
And mercy’s arms were opened wide
My heart is filled with a thousand songs
Proclaiming the glories of Calvary
With every breath, Lord how I long
To sing of Jesus who died for me
Lord, take me deeper
Into the glories of Calvary
Verse 2
Sinners find eternal joy
In the triumph of Your wounds
By our Savior’s crimson flow
Holy wrath has been removed
And Your saints below
Join with your saints above
Rejoicing in the Risen Lamb
