61. The Cross

1 Sad and weary with my longing,
Filled with shame, because of sin;
As I am in conscious weakness,
Here I would salvation win.

All I have I leave for Jesus,
I am counting it but dross,
I am coming to the Master,
I am clinging to the cross.

2 O the joy of knowing Jesus,
It is dawning on my soul;
I am finding his salvation,
And the pow’r that makes me whole. [Refrain]

3 O refine me by thy spirit,
Make my earthly life sublime,
With my heart a home for Jesus,
Till I’m done with earth and time. [Refrain]
