No. 109 In the Cross

Verse 1:
In the cross of Christ I glory,
Towering o’er the wrecks of time;
All the light of sacred story,
Gathers ’round its head sublime.

Verse 2:
When the woes of life o’ertake me,
Hopes deceive and fears annoy,
Never shall the cross forsake me;
Lo! it glows with peace and joy.

Verse 3:
When the sun of bliss is beaming,
Light and love upon my way
From the cross the radiance streaming,
Adds new luster to the day.

Verse 4:
Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
By the cross are sanctified;
Peace there is that knows no measure,
Joys that through all time abide.
