Representative Text

1. Cross of Jesus, cross of Love,
Emblem of my King above;
Cross where Jesus shed His blood,
Where His love and mercy flowed.

Blessèd cross, oh, let me rest
’Neath thy shadow, and be blest,
Blessèd cross, oh, let me rest
’Neath thy shadow, and be blest.

2. Cross of Jesus, cross of Peace,
Where my soul finds sweet release;
Where He died to set me free,
Suffered pain and agony. [Refrain]

3. Cross of Jesus, cross of Hope,
Cross on which my Savior spoke
Words of comfort in the hour
When He conquered Satan’s power. [Refrain]
