1 In the light, Lord, of Thy cross
May I this world ever see;
While with Thee, I walk in faith,
True and fearless may I be.
2 Whence my Saviour crowned with thorns,
Went rejected scornfully,
In the world that hates Thy name,
I at home will never be!
3 Let the dread severity
Of Thy cross, Lord, stir my heart;
That with Thee I die and live,
Never more from Thee depart.
4 Then will I return with Thee
Once more to the world below;
Not to seek its happiness,
But Thine own peace to bestow.
