All Because of Calvary


Lyrics and music by J.O. Strother:

Oh when I think of all that Jesus did for me on Calvary,
How He suffered, bled, and died to set me free;
My heart is filled, my soul is thrilled, for now I have the victory,
All because of Jesus' death on Calvary.

Blessed Jesus, Savior mine,
Son of man and Son Divine,
Sacrifice He made for me on cruel Calvary;
My heart is filled, my soul is thrilled for now I have the victory,
All because of Jesus' death on Calvary.


"See from His head, His hands, His feet, sorrow and love flow mingled down,"
In the mystic sacrifice upon the tree.
"Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown,"
As the glorious gift of grace on Calvary.

Blessed Jesus, Savior mine,
Son of man and Son Divine,
Sacrifice He made for me on cruel Calvary;
My heart is filled, my soul is thrilled for now I have the victory,
All because of Jesus' death on Calvary.


"Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,"
Amazing blessings that abound,
All because of Jesus' sacrifice for me;
I have a song, my sins are gone, I'll praise His name eternally;
All because of what He did on Calvary.

Blessed Jesus, Savior mine,
Son of man and Son Divine,
Sacrifice He made for me on cruel Calvary;
My heart is filled, my soul is thrilled for now I have the victory,
All because of Jesus' death on Calvary.

What a precious man. My dad and stepmother remembered reading your grandfather's obit in the San Angelo paper and thought he must have been such a dear! Wish they'd been able to get over to visit with him. They usually enjoy visiting those in nursing homes, hospitals, etc., and are good at cheering people up! They would have really enjoyed him!
