When Tempted Oft To Turn Aside

When tempted oft to turn aside,
And from His loving presence flee,
I clasp again that wounded hand,
When I remember Calvary.

O Calvary, lone Calvary,
O loving Christ who died for me,
How can my heart unfaithful be
When I remember Calvary?

When ‘mid the strain of toil and care
The cross too heavy seems to be,
And thorny grows my pilgrim way,
Then I remember Calvary. [Refrain]

When grief’s dark day comes on apace,
Unanswered seems each trusting plea,
And all my sins with shame I view,
Then I remember Calvary. [Refrain]
