Dark the day on Calvary’s Cross
1. Dark the day on Calvary’s Cross
Where in pain Thou diedst for me,
Choosing bitterness and loss,
From my sins to set me free.
Help me, every passing hour,
By Love’s power
To live for Thee.
2. Faith and Hope through fear did fail
Heaven’s high stars they could not see;
Yet even Death could not prevail,
Thou didst leave its darksome place;
Give me grace
To live in Thee.
3. Often we have weary feet,
Many a heavy cross have we;
Yet Thy sacrifice complete
Gives us faith that Thine we be;
Through the dark day’s dragging length
Give me strength
To live to Thee.
4. Saviour, who didst win Love’s crown,
Just to pass it on to me,
Help me, those in sin bowed down
To uplift and bring to Thee,
That together we may climb
Up through Time
To live with Thee.
