Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
First Line: Oh, how dark the night that wrapt
Oh, how dark the night that wrapt
my spirit round !
Oh, how deep the woe my Saviour found
When His blessed sunshine flooded
all my soul,
Bade the darkness vanish : made me whole !
All the way to Calvary He went for me.
He went for me, He went for me ;
All the way to Calvary He went for me,
He died to set me free.
2 Tremblingly a sinner bowed before His face, Naught I knew of pardon-- nor His grace;
Heard a voice so tender :
Cease thy wild regret
I have bought thy pardon, paid thy debt
3 Oh, 'twas wondrous love the Saviour showed for me,
When He left His throne for Calvary
When He trod the wine press, trod it all alone :
Praise His name for ever make it known
