“The Saviour alone
Carried the cross
For all of my debts
He paid the cost
Salvation complete
Forever I’m free
Calvary covers it all”

Calvary

The lyrics to this song depict so beautifully the grace and mercy that we find at the foot of the cross of Christ – the day our Saviour paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. Yet, ‘beauty’ was nowhere to be found on the day Jesus died.

The Bible tells us that the sky darkened as the Roman soldiers cast lots beneath the cross. That as Jesus suffered – bruised and bleeding on death’s door – the open wounds from His beating and the deep gashes from the crown on His head, were a horrific sight to behold.

In the midst of His suffering, it was on that cross and in that moment that Heaven and Earth collided — that Jesus committed His Spirit into the hands of His Heavenly Father and that the Kingdom of Heaven invaded our earthly kingdom on a hill called Calvary. We recognize the work of salvation that Jesus did on the cross, celebrate the gift of salvation and the miracle of His resurrection.
