Representative Text

1 Kneel at the cross,
Christ will meet you there,
Come while He waits for you;
List to His voice,
Leave with Him your care
And begin life anew.

Kneel at the cross,
Leave ev'ry care;
Kneel at the cross,
Jesus will meet you there.

2 Kneel at the cross,
There is room for all
Who would His glory share;
Bliss there awaits,
Harm can ne'er befall
Those who are anchored there. [Refrain]

3 Kneel at the cross,
Give your idols up,
Look unto realms above;
Turn not away
To life's sparkling cup;
Trust only in His love. [Refrain]
