64. Oh, 'tis Glory

1 To thy cross, dear Christ I'm clinging,
All my refuge and my plea;
Matchless is thy loving-kindness,
Else it had not stooped to me.

Chorus:
Oh, 'tis glory! oh, 'tis glory!
Oh, 'tis glory in my soul!
For I've touched the hem of his garment,
And his power doth make me whole.

2 Long my heart hath heard thee calling,
But I thrust aside thy grace;
Yet, O boundless condescension,
Love is shining from thy face.
[Chorus]

3 Love eternal, light eternal,
Close me safely, sweetly in;
Saviour, let thy balm of healing,
Ever keep me free from sin.
[Chorus]
