THE SHADOW OF THE CROSS




Oppressed by noonday’s scorching heat,
To yonder Cross I flee,
Beneath its shelter take my seat—
No shade like this to me!


Beneath that Cross clear waters burst,
A fountain sparkling free,
And there I quench my desert thirst—
No spring like this to me!


For burdened ones a resting place
Beside that Cross I see;
I here cast off my weariness—
No rest like this for me!


A stranger here, I pitch my tent
Beneath this spreading tree;
Here shall my pilgrim life be spent—
No home like this for me!


---Alternative verses---


Oppressed with noonday’s scorching heat,
To yonder Cross I flee,
Beneath its shelter take my seat—
No shade like this to me!
