Lead Me to Calvary

Lead Me to Calvary Lyrics

1 King of my life I crown Thee now-
Thine shall the glory be;
Lest I forget Thy thorn-crowned brow,
Lead me to Calvary.

Lest I forget Gethsemane,
Lest I forget Thine agony,
Lest I forget Thy love for me,
Lead me to Calvary.

2 Show me the tomb where Thou wast laid,
Tenderly mourned and wept;
Angels in robes of light arrayed
Guarded Thee whilst Thou slept. [Refrain]

3 Let me like Mary, thru the gloom,
Come with a gift to Thee;
Show to me now the empty tomb-
Lead me to Calvary. [Refrain]

4 May I be willing, Lord, to bear
Daily my cross for Thee;
Even Thy cup of grief to share-
Thou hast borne all for me. [Refrain]

Lead Me to Calvary Hymn Story

“Lead Me to Calvary” is a hymn that was written in 1921 by Jennie Evelyn Hussey.

This a hymn that helps us focus on the cross of Jesus Christ which is central to Christianity. Without the Cross there would be no Christianity.

All Christian doctrines revolve around the cross for without the Cross they are useless.

That is why song pleads with the Lord to lead us to calvary. Otherwise without being reminded of the cross we will forget his thorn crowned brow.

That should be the prayer of all of us. Lead me to calvary.

The author of this hymn, Jennie Evelyn Hussey was born on 8th February 1874 in New Hampshire.

Her appetite for story writing and poetry started when she was a teenager. This could be because she was mostly home bound due to rheumatism.
