Hymn/Song Information

Above the hills of time the cross is




Above the hills of time
the cross is gleaming,
Fair as the sun when night
has turned to day;
And from it love's pure light
is richly streaming,
To cleanse the heart
and banish sin away.
To this dear cross the eyes
of men are turning,
Today as in the
ages lost to sight;
And for Thee, O Christ,
men's hearts are yearning,
As shipwrecked seamen yearn
for morning light.


The cross, O Christ,
Thy wondrous love revealing,
Awakes our hearts as with
the light of morn,
And pardon o'er our
sinful spirits stealing,
Tells us that we, in Thee,
have been reborn.
Like echoes to sweet
temple bells replying
Our hearts, O Lord,
make answer to Thy love;
And we will love Thee
with a love undying,
Till we are gathered.
