#123: In the Cross of Christ I Glory

Standard
(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

In the cross of Christ I glory,

Tow’ring o’er the wrecks of time;

All the light of sacred story

Gathers round its head sublime.

2

When the woes of life o’ertake me,

Hopes deceive and fears annoy,

Never shall the cross forsake me:

Lo! it glows with peace and joy.

3

When the sun of bliss is beaming

Light and love upon my way,

From the cross the radiance streaming

Adds more luster to the day.

4

Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,

By the cross are sanctified;

Peace is there that know s no measure,

Joys that thru all time abide.
