1 “Cross of love,” where Christ did languish,
Never such a friend as he;
How he suffered—O what anguish—
On the cross for you and me.
The cruel nails could not keep him there,
Only the bonds of love, of love;
He died to save us from dark despair,
O wonderful cross of love.
2 “Cross of love!” O hear the story,—
God his only Son did give;
Our Redeemer, King of Glory,
Jesus died that we might live. [Refrain]
3 “Cross of love!” Will you accept him?
Turn tow’rd him your troubled heart;
Come, O come, do not reject him,
And he’ll ne’er bid you depart. [Refrain]
4 “Cross of love!” ‘Tis Jesus my Savior
Offers pardon full and free;
Only trust him, he will save you,
At the cross of Calvary. [Refrain]Source: The Finest of the Wheat No. 3 #41
