Calvary, Calvary,
Calvary, Calvary,
Calvary, Calvary,
Surely He died on Calvary.

1 Ev'ry time I think about Jesus,
Ev'ry time I think about Jesus,
Ev'ry time I think about Jesus,
Surely He died on Calvary. [Refrain]

2 Sinner, do you love my Jesus?

Sinner, do you love my Jesus?
Surely He died on Calvary. [Refrain]

3 We are climbing Jacob's ladder,
We are climbing Jacob's ladder,
We are climbing Jacob's ladder,
Surely He died on Calvary. [Refrain]

Ev'ry round goes higher and higher,
Surely He died on Calvary. [Refrain]
