In the light of the cross there is peace

Representative Text

1 In the light of the cross there is peace for the heart,
There is resting and comfort divine,
There is joy, blessed joy nothing else can impart;
May its glory forever be mine!

Refrain:
In the light of the cross, In the beautiful light,
Brighter far than the glory of the sun,
In the light of the cross where my Lord was crucified,
Let me walk till life’s journey is done.

2 In the light of the cross all my sins are forgiv’n,
In its light they are whiter than snow;
For its light is the love of my Savior in heav’n,
And that love I forever shall know. [Refrain]

3 In the light of the cross let me live day by day;
Let me walk in the joy of the Lord;
May its glorious light ever shine on my way
Till I come to my final reward. [Refrain]
