Hymn/Song Information

Where cross the crowded ways of life




Where cross the
crowded ways of life,
Where sound the cries
of race and clan
Above the noise of selfish strife,
We hear your voice, O Son of man.


In haunts of wretchedness
and need,
On shadowed thresholds
dark with fears,
From paths where hide
the lures of greed,
We catch the vision of Your tears.


From tender childhood’s
helplessness,
From woman’s grief,
man’s burdened toil,
From famished souls,
from sorrow’s stress,
Your heart has never known recoil.


The cup of water given for You,
Still holds the freshness of Your grace;
Yet long these multitudes to view
The sweet compassion of Your face.


O Master, from the mountainside
Make haste to heal these hearts of pain;
Among these restless throngs abide;
O tread the city’s streets again.


Till sons of men shall learn Your love
And follow where Your feet have trod,
Till, glorious from Your heaven above,
Shall come the city of our God!
