THE CROSS OF JESUS




I saw the cross of Jesus,
when burdened with my sin;
I sought the cross of Jesus,
to give me peace within;
I brought my soul to Jesus,
He cleansed it in His blood;
And in the cross of Jesus
I found my peace with God.


I love the cross of Jesus,
it tells me what I am—
A vile and guilty creature,
saved only through the Lamb;
No righteousness nor merit,
no beauty can I plead;
Yet in the cross I glory,
my title there I read.


I trust the cross of Jesus,
in every trying hour,
My sure and certain refuge,
my never failing tower;
In every fear and conflict,
I more than conqueror am;
Living, I’m safe, or dying,
through Christ, the risen Lamb.


Sweet is the cross of Jesus!
There let my weary heart
Still rest in peace unshaken,
till with Him, ne’er to part;
And then in strains of glory
I’ll sing His wondrous power,
Where sin can never enter,
and death is known no more.


---Alternative verses---


I clasp the cross of Jesus
In every trying hour,
My sure and certain refuge,
My never failing tower;
In every fear and conflict,
I more than conqu’ror am;
Living, I’m safe—or dying—
Thro’ Christ the risen Lamb.


Safe in the cross of Jesus!
There let my weary heart
Still rest in peace unshaken,
till with Him, ne’er to part;
And then in strains of glory
I’ll sing His wondrous power,
Where sin can never enter,
and death is known no more.
