Calvary Covers It All!

The beauty of the cross is its absolute totality. Whether one is 7 or 70, living in a mansion or on the streets or on death row, a faithful servant of God or a hardened reprobate, when we lay our sin at the foot of the cross, we discover that Calvary Covers It All

I hadn't thought about this song in years, but it popped into my head when I began thinking about what songs to feature this week. I love the quiet reflectful way Dave Boyer sings this.

Calvary covers it all
All my past, with its sin and shame
My guilt and despair
Jesus took on Him there
And Calvary covers it all

Far dearer than all that this world can impart
Is the message came to my heart.
How that Jesus alone for my sin did atone,
And Calvary covers it all.
