Once Upon a Cross Upon a Hill Called Calvary

 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12

Oh, once upon a cross upon a hill called Calvary
A Once for All Sacrifice gave His life for you and me
No one can arrogate it and no offering annul
The once for all Atonement Jesus Christ has paid in full

Faithful through mortal ages the Pledge of Redemption stands
Sealed by the blood of Jesus, signed with heaven’s nail-scarred hands
No note can nullify it and no sinner can exceed
The grace that poured from Christ the Lord to satisfy man’s Need

What masses deemed as failure, as His lifeless form they saw
Upon a love-begotten cross, rent The Veil and The Law
Where His own Son laid down His life on broken man’s behalf

Then come, lift high the glory-song of Hope with every breath
For once upon a cross upon a hill Christ conquered death
By death; He overcame the world even as ages roll
The power of the cross abides; The Saviour of the soul
