1 Close, close to Thy cross, O Christ!
My guilty soul would fly;
Thy flowing blood can wash me white
From sins of crimson dye!
Close to Thy cross, close to Thy cross,
Jesus, my Lord, I cling;
Shelter me there, shelter me there,
’Neath Thy protecting wing.
2 Close, close to Thy cross, O Christ!
My burdened soul would go;
There’s sweet relief in Thy warm love
For every grief I know! [Refrain]
3 Close, close to Thy cross, O Christ!
My tempted soul would stand;
No foe can harm, no work o’ertask,
While under Thy kind hand! [Refrain]
4 Close, close to Thy cross, O Christ!
My weary soul would rest;
No wrath, no fear, no shadows there
Disturb my quiet breast! [Refrain]
