I BELIEVE IN A HILL CALLED MOUNT CALVARY

VERSE 1:
D7        G            C           G
There are things as we travel this earth's shifting sands
          D7                      G
That tran-scend all the reason of man;
        C           Cm         G
But the things that matter the most in this world,
         D7                   G     G7
They can never be held in our hand.

CHORUS:
G7   C                            G
I be-lieve in a hill called Mount Calv'ry-
     Em         A7       D7sus4  D7
I be-lieve what-ever the cost;
         G            B7           C           A7
And when time has sur-rendered and earth is no more,
           D7                       G
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.

VERSE 2:
I believe that the Christ Who was slain on the cross
Has the power to change lives today;
For He changed me completely, a new life is mine,
That is why by the cross I will stay.

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 3:
I believe that this life with its great mysteries
Surely someday will come to an end;
But faith will conquer the darkness and death
And will lead me at last to my Friend.

(REPEAT CHORUS)
