Al Calvario, solo Jesús ascendió

Representative Text

1 Al Calvario solo Jesús ascendió
Llevando pesada cruz,
Y al morir en ella al mortal dejó
Un fanal de gloriosa luz.

Coro:
La cruz sólo me guiará,
La cruz sólo me guiará;
A mi hogar de paz y eterno amor,
La cruz sólo me guiará.

2 En la cruz el alma tan sólo hallará
La fuente de inspiración;
Nada grande y digno en el mundo habrá
Que en la cruz no halle aprobación. [Coro]

3 Yo por ella voy a mi hogar celestial,
El rumbo marcando está;
En mi oscura vida será el fanal
Y a su luz mi alma siempre irá. [Coro]

Jessie Brown Pounds was born in Hiram, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland on 31 August 1861. She was not in good health when she was a child so she was taught at home. She began to write verses for the Cleveland newspapers and religious weeklies when she was fifteen. After an editor of a collection of her verses noted that some of them would be well suited for church or Sunday School hymns, J. H. Fillmore wrote to her asking her to write some hymns for a book he was publishing. She then regularly wrote hymns for Fillmore Brothers.
