Where? Here...

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him,
Luke 23:33

Here mankind finds peace and pardon
Here forgiveness saves the soul
Here is healing and redemption
Here, though broken, we are whole

Here is sacred, sacred sorrow
Here is hope’s fullness of joy
Here the rich man and the beggar
Find true wealth none can destroy

Here we lay down our burden
And here we take up our cross
Here we trade in man-made treasure
Counting all but Heaven loss

Here we see grace unrequited
Here where sinners bend the knee
Mankind finds life through Love dying
Where? Ah, here at Calvary
