Protestant Hymns of the Passion

Lead Me to Calvary

1.
King of my life, I crown Thee now,
Thine shall the glory be;
Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow,
Lead me to Calvary.

Refrain

SpacerLest I forget Gethsemane;
SpacerLest I forget Thine agony,
SpacerLest I forget Thy love for me,
SpacerLead me to Calvary.

2.
Show me the tomb where Thou was laid,
Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept.

Refrain

3.
Show me the tomb where Thou was laid,
Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept.

Refrain

4.
Let me like Mary through the gloom,
Come with a gift to Thee;
Show to me now the empty tomb,
Lead me to Calvary.

Refrain

5.
May I be willing, Lord, to bear
Daily my cross for Thee;
Even Thy cup of grief to share,
Thou hast borne all for me.

Refrain
