Years I Spent In Vanity And Pride


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.

By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
till my guilty soul imploring turned
to Calvary. [Refrain]

Now I’ve given to Jesus everything,
now I gladly own Him as my King,
now my raptured soul can only sing
of Calvary. [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]
