Representative Text

1 At the cross I was kneeling,
When the Lord Himself revealing,
Gave me peace in believing,
When I sought His mercy there.

2 At the cross I will glory,
And to all proclaim the story,
How I found my Redeemer,
And He heard my humble pray’r.

3 To the cross I am clinging,
And my faith and hope are singing
Songs of praise to my Saviour,
For His kind and gentle care.

4 I was lost but He found me,
With His love divine He bound me,—
O my full heart adores Him,
For He heard my humble pray’r.
