Representative Text

1 Here at Thy cross, my dying Lord,
I lay my soul beneath Thy love,
Beneath the droppings of Thy blood,
Jesus, nor shall it e'er remove.

2 Should worlds conspire to drive me thence,
Moveless and firm this heart should lie;
Resolved--for that's my last defence--
If I must perish, there to die.

3 But speak, my Lord, and calm my fear;
Am I not safe beneath Thy shade?
Thy vengeance will not strike me here,
Nor Satan dares my soul invade.

4 Yes, I'm secure beneath Thy blood,
And all my foes shall lose their aim;
Hosannah to my dying Lord,
And my best honors to His name.

Notes

Here at Thy Cross, my dying God. I. Watts. [Salvation in the Cross.] First published in his Hymns & Sacred Songs, 1707, Book ii., No. 4, in 5 stanzas of 4 lines. It is in common use in its original form, and as: "Here at Thy Cross, my dying Lord"; "Here at Thy Cross, incarnate God"; and "Here at Thy Cross, my Saviour God," in various American hymn-books, the aim of these alterations being to remove the objection that might be made to the clause my dying God, in the opening line. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology (1907)
