I GLORY IN THE CROSS




I glory in the cross of Christ,
My Saviour and my God,
I count this glittering world but dross,
To gain his high abode;
Earth has no charms to win my heart.
No bliss, no joy for me,
I cannot see its beauties now,
I see but Calvary.

I do believe, I now believe,
That Jesus died for me;
And through his blood, his precious blood,
I am from sin set free.


I see the cross on which he died,
ln agony, for me,
I see the spear that pierced his side,
I hear his dying plea;
His hands, his feet are bleeding fast,
His wounds stand open wide,
They speak my sins and sorrows past,
I'll in those wounds abide.

I do believe, I now believe,
That Jesus died for me;
And through his blood, his precious blood,
I am from sin set free.


I'll hang my guilty head upon
That bosom ope'd for me.
I'll venture to implore his grace;
I'll plead dear Calvary;
Oh, yes, he will not, cannot spurn
Me from his bleeding arms,
I know he loves me though I've dared
To scoff at all his charms.

I do believe, I now believe,
That Jesus died for me;
And through his blood, his precious blood,
I am from sin set free.


He died for me, he died for all,
He lighted death's dark way,
And opened up through heavens bright gates,
A path to endless day,
He purchased then a blissful home,
For all his exiled race;
And now he calls us up to him,
To see his Father's face.

I do believe, I now believe,
That Jesus died for me;
And through his blood, his precious blood,
I am from sin set free.
