At Calvary …

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

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

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!

  1. God’s Unconditional Love is comforting soothing and helps me thru these tough times. Mom passed 3/17/2017 and laid to rest 3/25/16. We miss and love her, yet have so many questions? I always thought I would go before her. This is a total shock and devastating! She went fast after her knee surgery 12/04/15. Why was this surgery different from the others? Only God can comfort me with the truth! During that week she had a talk with God. She was at peace during all her pain and suffering.! She told me she had a talk with God! He’s got this! This is another example of how he leads me on this journey. This song helps me understand God’s Love.
    Thanks for sharing!
    This truly helps me express deep feelings to help with healing during our time of grief.

    • Mellodia .. you have said it right. God’s love is unconditional and He is ever faithful and merciful. We may not always understand .. but when we look back there has been a reason for everything that happens which is designed to bring us home… like Me his errant and way ward child who did not always listen to him.
      Losing a parent is one of the greatest sorrows. And when you think it was do to a knee surgery there must be lots more questions too.
      Like we had when Dad died in 2000 – I wondered whether I could have done more for I had seen his weak heart 4 months earlier in the echogram. The Doctor just did not explain options and I did not think to ask.
      The pain was so unbearable I stopped thinking about Dad. Now..it is less easy to recall him. My brain has been conditioned by 15 years to ‘switch’ thoughts which is a pity cause I am ready no to dwell on the happy memories.
      Although it might hurt, try not to do this or stop thinking about it because of the pain. The pain will eventually lesson but you will have her in vivid and vibrant memories.
      And I wonder ..why you thought you will go before her? Are you unwell ?
      My prayers are with you.

      • Sorry to hear you lost your Dad. Our Dads were awesome! I still grieve my Dad. Yes its still painful more so since his sudden passing 10/06/08 and Mom suddenly passing 3/17/16.
        God has the master plan for all of us and it helps me by staying focused on him and his precious words. So you see I always thought I would go before Mom because I have high blood pressure, diabetic, and from all the blood meds over year have problems with kidneys.

        Writing truly helps me cope with day to day stress,

        T hanks for reaching out. My prayers are with you.
