WHERE BURDENS ARE LIFTED



William R. Newell
gave the answer when
he wrote:

  1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
    Caring not my Lord was crucified,
    Knowing not it was for me He died
    On Calvary.
    • By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
      Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
      Till my guilty soul imploring turned
      To Calvary.
  2. Now I’ve giv’n to Jesus everything,
    Now I gladly own Him as my King,
    Now my raptured soul can only sing
    Of Calvary!
  3. Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
    Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
    Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span
    At Calvary!
  4. Refrain:
    Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
    Pardon there was multiplied to me;
    There my burdened soul found liberty
    At Calvary.

Beautiful! Oh that I could have learned to trust that source of comfort & joy in my younger years. But I thank God it is a truth that I cling to now.

Blessings,
