By the cross of Christ, our Savior

Representative Text

1 By the cross of Christ, our Savior,
We thro' faith are justified
From all guilt and condemnation,
While we trust the crucified.

Chorus:
God forbid that we should glory
Save in Jesus' cross alone;
For His blood still tells the story
How for sin He did atone.

2 By the cross we're lifted nearer
To the heart of Him who died;
Daily grows our vision clearer
To behold the crucified. [Chorus]

3 By the cross of Christ, our longings
For a crown is satisfied;
Thoughts of joy beyond are thronging
As we stand the cross beside. [Chorus]

4 By the cross a fount of healing
Flowed from out His wounded side;
Sinners, there in mercy kneeling,
Seek ye now the crucified. [Chorus]
