That Man of Calvary ~ Good Friday

That Man of Calvary

Fairest of all the earth beside,
Chiefest of all unto Thy bride,
Fullness divine in Thee I see,
Beautiful Man of Calvary!


That Man of Calvary
Has won my heart from me,
And died to set me free,
Blest Man of Calvary!

Granting the sinner life and peace,
Granting the captive sweet release,
Shedding His blood to make us free,
Merciful Man of Calvary!


Giving the gifts obtained for men,
Pouring out love beyond our ken,
Giving us spotless purity,
Bountiful Man of Calvary!


Comfort of all my earthly way,
Jesus I’ll meet Thee some sweet day;
Center of glory Thee I’ll see,
Wonderful Man of Calvary!


Words: Mannie P. Ferguson, 1904

Good Friday, the only way to the Resurrection and our gift of forgiveness and peace with God! Praying you all have that peace today…

    I was over here earlier, but didn’t post a comment. I was busy ruminating over your lyrics. Wonderful words…wonderful meaning…wonderful Man who saved us from our sins ;-).

    OH, I went to a Russian Art exhibit on Iconography and I’ll try and get some of the pictures up for you this week. I thought about you a lot while I was there and has reminded of the rich and beautiful heritage you have. ANd then yesterday it hit me as I was looking at your Paska…is that, “Passover” in Russian? We attended a Seder Supper on Monday that was so much fun…sadly Elijah didn’t show up…again, but we still set a place for him at the table ;-O.

    xoxo cori g.
