Beneath the Cross of Jesus

1. Beneath the cross of Jesus
I fain would take my stand,
The shadow of
a mighty rock
The shadow in
Within a
weary land;
a weary land
A home within
the wilderness,
A home, a rest,

A rest upon
the way,

upon the way

From the burning of the noontide heat,
and the burden of the day.


2. Upon the cross of Jesus,
mine eye at times can see
The very dying
form of One
The very dying
Who suffered there
for me;
One for me;
And from my stricken heart with tears
And from my heart,

Two wonders I

I confess

The wonders of redeeming love
and my unworthiness.


3. I take, O cross, thy shadow
for my abiding place:
I ask no other
sunshine than
I ask, no other
The sunshine
of His face;

than His face;

Content to let
the world go by
Content to know
To know no gain
nor loss,

no gain nor loss.

My sinful self my only shame,
my glory, all the cross.
