Family Night Hymns – “At Calvary”

At our last Friday Family Night, we sang “At Calvary”. It really went well with the message, as it was a testimony from someone at the Chapel. This hymn is structured like a Christian testimony. Verse one tells of one’s life before Christ; verse two is his conversion to Christ; verse three is his new life; and verse four is praising God about it.

“At Calvary”
Words by William B. Newell & music by Daniel B. Towner

1. Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died
On Calvary.

Chorus:
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty
At Calvary.

2. 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.

Chorus

3. 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!

Chorus

4. 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!

Chorus

Sunday Hymn – Saved by the Blood

Here is one of the hymns we sang last Sunday. Try reading or singing it as if you had never heard of Christianity or the Bible before. Listen to what it is really saying as if for the first time. This is a way of seeing just how amazing God and His salvation is. (And remember that crucifixion was used as a shameful and painful from of execution.)

Saved by the Blood
Words by S.J. Henderson, Music by Daniel B. Towner

1. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
Now ransomed from sin and a new work begun,
Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

Chorus:
Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
My sins are all pardoned, my guilt is all gone!
Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
I’m saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

2. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
The angels rejoicing because it is done;
A child of the Father, joint-heir with the Son,
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

Chorus

3. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
The Father He spake, and His will it was done;
Great price of my pardon, His own precious Son;
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

Chorus

4. Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
All hail to the Father, all hail to the Son,
All hail to the Spirit, the great Three in One!
Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
