Glorying in the Cross.
130

In the cross of Christ we glory,

Towering o’er the wrecks of time;

All the light of sacred story

Gathers round its head sublime.

When the woes of life overtake us,

Hopes deceive, and fears annoy;

Never shall the cross forsake us,

Lo! it glows with peace and joy!

When the sun of bliss is beaming

Light and love upon our way;

From the cross the radiance streaming

Adds more lustre to the day.

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,

By the cross are sanctified;

Peace is there that knows no measure,

Joys that through all time abide.

In the cross of Christ we glory,

Towering o’er the wrecks of time;

All the light of sacred story

Gathers round its head sublime.
