3. Come to Calvary

‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him deny himself; take up his cross and follow me’, said Jesus.

For many believers throughout history, and even in our world today, commitment and the laying down of one’s life go hand in hand.

We have it relatively easy in the west…for the moment.

Dm G C

My Father chose to fire an arrow,

Dm G C

at a piece of dust a world away.

Dm G Em Am

The way is long, the road is narrow,

Dm G C

and we are just ~ or so they say.

C Ab

Come to Calvary, carry this for me.

Dm G C

See truth in pain, gain in loss.

Cm Fm C

Come to Calvary, kiss the cross.

Dm G C

I am a child, who knows no hatred.

Dm G C

Who sees a cruel place and wonders why?

Dm G Em Am

The gate is closed, where love has waited,

Dm G C

So many centuries, only to die.

C Ab

Come to Calvary, carry this for me.

Dm G C

See truth in pain, gain in loss.

Cm Fm C

Come to Calvary, kiss the cross.

Dm G C

I am the poor, who go unaided.

Dm G C

I am the broken one, who strives alone.

Dm G Em Am

Who looks for food, sees wealth paraded,

Dm G C

who looks for charity, and finds a stone.

C Ab

Come to Calvary, carry this for me.

Dm G C

See truth in pain, gain in loss.

Cm Fm C

Come to Calvary, kiss the cross.

Dm G C

I am the cry of global hunger,

Dm G C

I am the sighing at the end.

Dm G Em Am

This needless pain should be a stranger,

Dm G C

not an old familiar friend.

C Ab

Come to Calvary, carry this for me.

Dm G C

See truth in pain, gain in loss.

Cm Fm C

Come to Calvary, kiss the cross.
