Repentance is nothing else but a reformation of the whole life according to the law of God

John Calvin

From “Sifted Silver” by John Blanchard

Calvary


He died on a cross at Calvary

Liberating each sinner from slavery

There’s no other deed that could ever compare

An act of pure love in a world of despair


Yet, where is Calvary? but in the heart

For those whom God had set apart

Sin has been punished, a ransom paid

Where the ultimate sacrifice was made


Yet who is this man? who loved us so much

Rejected by many, yet perceived by His touch

Jesus the Saviour who laid down His life

As the world lay in conflict, hatred and strife


God left us His Son, so as not to forget

To free His people from the fear of death

He suffered the penalty, because of their sin

To save them from guilt and darkness within


There’s a message of hope, nailed on the cross

Amidst chaos, confusion and impure dross

Yet Christ is triumphant when He drew His last breath

Winning the victory and conquering death


Now, there’s a definite gateway that you can go through

For whoever repents, the door’s open to you

A life that’s eternal, for you to receive

For no one will perish, for those who believe


So don’t put off tomorrow, what you can do today

For He is the life, the truth and the way

Through faith you can, be with him in glory

When you seek and believe in the true Easter story.
