Representative Text

1 Here stands the cross of the crucified one,
Symbol of faith in the Father’s dear Son,
Symbol of victories yet to be won,
By this we conquer.

Refrain:
Lift up the cross! lift up the cross!
High over sin with its ruin and loss,
Urge on the mighty strife,
Fight for eternal life,
Lift up the cross! lift up the cross!

2 Cross of the mighty one, tho’ crucified,
Symbol of death, here the dear Savior died,
Source of that fountain of blood from his side,
By this we conquer. [Refrain]

3 Symbol of death, yet the symbol of life,
Death is now conquered, the cross is now rife;
Only, with power to vanquish all strife,
By this we conquer. [Refrain]

4 Gods of the heathen must crumble and fail,
Systems of error prove worthless and frail,
Christ and his cross at the last must prevail,
By this we conquer. [Refrain]

5 Falter not! Waver not! Faithful endure!
Stand by the sacred cross, triumph secure,
Great is the rich reward, certain and sure,
By this we conquer. [Refrain]
