371. Years I Spent in Vanity and Pride

Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified;
Knowing not it was for me He died
On Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty
At Calvary.
By God's Word at last my sin I learned,
Then I trembled at the truth I'd spurned,
Till my guilty soul, imploring, turned
To Calvary.
Oh! the love that drew salvation's plan,
Oh! the grace that brought it down to man,
Oh! the mighty gulf that God did span
At Calvary.
