CROSS OF CHRIST




The cross of Christ inspires my heart
To sing redeeming grace;
Awake, my soul, and bear a part
In my Redeemerís praise.
Oh, who can be compared to Him
Who died upon the tree?
This is my dear delightful theme,
That Jesus died for me.


A glorious band, the chosen few,
On whom the Spirit came,
Twelve valiant saints,
their hope they knew,
And mocked the cross and flame;
Oh God, to us may grace be givín
To follow in their train.
Through peril, toil
and pain they climbed
The steep ascent to heavín.
