Chris Tomlin: God of Calvary

God of Calvary, a song from Chris Tomlin’s new album Never Lose Sight.  The song was written by Jonas Myrin, Matt Redman, Matt Maher, Chris Tomlin.

The words:

On the hill of Calvary the Light of all the world
With the world on His shoulders
The weight of all our shame
On Him who knew no sin
A holy surrender
The sky went dark, the angels wept
The Father looked away
The final breath He bowed His head
The Lamb of God was slain

By His wounds, I am set free!
By His blood, I’ve been redeemed!
The great divide He crossed for me!
Oh, praise the God of Calvary!

On the hill of Calvary into the Father’s hands
A holy surrender a borrowed tomb His mother wept
And there His body lay but the stone was moved
He conquered death and rose up from the grave!

By His wounds, I am set free!
By His blood, I’ve been redeemed!
The great divide He crossed for me!
Oh, praise the God of Calvary!

And if I never, never lose sight of this place
I will never, never lose sight of Your grace
Your cross is all, all I need to see
Oh, praise the God of Calvary!

By Your wounds I am set free!
By Your blood I’ve been redeemed!
The great divide, You crossed for me!
Oh, praise the God of Calvary!
Your cross is all, all I need to see
Oh, praise the God of Calvary!
