"And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him..."
(LUKE 23:33, KJV)
William not only graduated, he became a Bible teacher at Moody and a pastor, evangelist, author, and conference speaker. Certainly his academic efforts, his father’s prayers, and the president’s dedication had more than paid off. But most importantly, William credited the grace of God for his complete resurgence.
One day, he wrote his testimony in poetry form. After reading it, Dr. Daniel Towner, Moody’s Director of Music, knew it would be compelling set to music, which he did. The result? The beautiful hymn, “At Calvary.”
What Christ accomplished at Calvary makes a complete resurgence available to everyone.
"MERCY THERE WAS GREAT, AND GRACE WAS FREE/ PARDON THERE WAS MULTIPLIED TO ME/ THERE MY BURDENED SOUL FOUND LIBERTY AT CALVARY."
(WILLIAM R. NEWELL, 1895)
