10986. Mine The Cross

1 Mine the cross, and Thine the glory,
Thou has suffered once for me;
Let my life be calm or clouded,
I can trust it, Lord, to Thee.
Let me feel the sweet assurance
Of Thy presence always near,
Grant me only this, my Father,
And my soul can never fear.
Mine the cross, and Thine the glory,
Thou has suffered once for me;
Let my life be calm or clouded,
I can trust it, Lord, to Thee.

2 All I am Thy grace has made me,
All I am I owe to Thee,
I can only thank and praise Thee,
For a love so pure and free.
Self denying, persevering,
Where Thy blessèd feet have led,
May I follow, daily growing
Up to Thee, my living head.
All I am Thy grace has made me,
All I am I owe to Thee,
I can only thank and praise Thee,
For a love so pure and free.

3 Mine the cross, and Thine the glory,
Thou hast borne it once for me;
Help me bear with Christian meekness
Every trial sent by Thee.
On Thy strength alone relying,
With Thy lamp to cheer my way,
Leaning on the staff of mercy,
I will labor, trust and pray.
Mine the cross, and Thine the glory,
Thou hast borne it once for me;
Help me bear with Christian meekness
Every trial sent by Thee.
