I BELIEVE IN A HILL CALLED MOUNT CALVARY
D7 G C G
There are things as we travel this earth's shifting sands
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.
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,
I'll still cling to that old rugged cross.
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.
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.
