78. Hold Up the Cross

1 Hold up the cross! there the Savior of men
Became our redemption from sin;
Then herald the story again and again,
Of all that dear Savior has been.

Hold up the cross!
Hold up the cross!
The crucified Lord is the hope of the nations;
Hold up the cross of Jesus.

2 Hold up the cross! ‘tis the signet of peace,
The promise of ages fulfilled;
It means a dominion that never shall cease,
The blessing our Father has willed. [Chorus]

3 Hold up the cross! let the people behold,
And know that salvation may be
Abundant and free, to the young and the old,
Yea, all who are willing to see. [Chorus]

4 Hold up the cross! there is no other way
For sinners, by sinning enslaved,
To come from the bondage of darkness to day,
And be everlastingly saved. [Chorus]
