Representative Text

1. Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
Hide my sins, and shelter me;
Claim or merit have I none,
I am vile, and all undone;
I to thee for succor fly;
Give me refuge, or I die.
Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
All my hopes are hung on thee.

Chorus:
Cross of Christ, sacred tree;
Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
All my hopes are hung on thee.

2. Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
Let me to thy shadow flee;
Here they mock'd the crucified,
Here the royal sufferer died;
Here was shed th' atoning blood,
Till it crimson'd all the sod.
Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
Can the guilty trust in thee? [Chorus]

3. Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
Type of love's deep mystery;
'Twas my sins provok'd this love,
I this matchless passion mov'd;
For my soul this love was stor'd,
On my head the blessing pour'd.
Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
Now I solve love's mystery. [Chorus]

4. Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
This my boast shall ever be;
That the blood for me was shed,
That for me He groan'd and bled;
Now I catch that gracious eye,
Now I know I shall not die.
Cross of Christ, O sacred tree,
All my guilt is lost in thee. [Chorus]
