1 Beautiful cross by faith I see,
Planted on Calvary for me;
Cross of the suffering Lamb of God,
Under thy pressing weight be trod;
Beautiful cross, so dear to me,
Beautiful cross of Calvary.
2 Beautiful faith that lifts me up,
Where I may taste the bitter cup;
Beautiful faith that bids me bear
Crosses and ills, his love to share;
Beautiful faith, when tempest-tossed,
Beautiful faith in Jesus' cross.
3 Beautiful cross of Calvary,
Oh, how my spirit clings to thee!
Beautiful faith that brings thee near:
Beautiful love that makes thee dear;
Beautiful cross and faith and love,
Sending me up to heaven above.
