To Calvary, Lord, in Spirit Now
MARTYRDOM | Same-Tune Hymns
Edward Denny, 1796-1889
Hugh Wilson, 1766-1824
To Calv'ry, Lord, in spirit now
Our weary souls repair,
To dwell upon Thy dying love,
And taste its sweetness there.
Sweet resting-place of ev'ry heart
That feels the plague of sin,
Yet knows that deep mysterious joy,
The peace of God within.
There through Thine hour of deepest woe,
Thy suffering spirit passed;
Grace there its wondrous vict'ry gained,
And love endured its last.
Dear suff'ring Lamb! Thy bleeding wounds,
With cords of love divine,
Have drawn our willing hearts to Thee,
And linked our life with Thine.
Our longing eyes would fain behold
That bright and blessed brow,
Once wrung with bitt'rest anguish, wear
Its crown of glory now.
Why linger then? Come, Saviour, come,
Responsive to our call;
Come, claim Thy ancient pow'r and reign,
The Heir and Lord of all.
