thanks to calvary lyrics – bill gaither

today, i went back to the place where i used to go
today, i saw the same old crowd i knew before
and when they asked me what had happened, i tried to tell them,
thanks to calvary, i don’t come here anymore.

thanks to calvary i am not the man i used to be
thanks to calvary things are different than before.
while the tears ran down my face i tried to tell them ,
thanks to calvary, i don’t come (live) here anymore.

then we went down to the house where we used to live,
my little boy (girl) ran and hid behind the door,
and i said “son (honey) you don’t need to be afraid, you’ve got a brand new daddy now,
(and i said, “son (honey) never fear, you’ve got a new mommy here,)
thanks to calvary we don’t live here anymore.

thanks to calvary i am not the man i used to be
thanks to calvary things are different than before. yes they are,
and as the tears ran down my face i tried to tell them (him)(her),
thanks to calvary, i don’t come (live) here anymore.

thanks to calvary i am not the man (dad) i used to be
thanks to calvary things are different than before.
and as the tears ran down my face i tried to tell them (him)(her),
thanks to calvary, i don’t come (live) here anymore.

thanks to calvary, we don’t live here anymore.
