GLORYING IN THE CROSS




Farewell, ye transitory things,
The wealth of kingdoms and of kings;
A nobler object far than you,
Appears to my enraptured view.


Jesus! In whom all glories meet,
Holy and just, and good and great;
Ever compassionate and kind,
My Saviour, Advocate, and Friend.


His blood redeemed my guilty soul,
On him I all my burdens roll;
From him I seek, in him possess,
Wisdom and strength and righteousness.


His praise shall all my powers employ,
My present hope, mt future joy;
For him I count my gain but loss,
And glory only in his cross.
