“One Christ—One Calvary”
Only one Christ, my Savior dear,
Of whom God’s Holy Word speaks clear,
And that true record that He gave
Proclaims that none but Christ can save.
One Christ alone by Faith I see,
Speak not of other “christs” to me
Only One Calvary I descry
Beneath a distant Syrian sky,
Where, nailed upon a cross of wood,
He sealed my pardon with His blood.
One Calvary alone Faith sees,
Point not to other “Calvaries. ”
There God-forsaken for my sake,
While the sun hid and rocks did quake,
For me made sin—for me accursed,
While hosts of darkness did their worst.
He died and dying did prevail;
His “It is Finished” rent the veil.
One Calvary alone for me,
One Christ, God’s Christ, and none but He.
And He who died and rose again
Is coming back on earth to reign,
Then we behold Him face to face,
And praise Him for His saving grace.

*2 Corinthians 11:3~But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent **beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
