Representative Text

1 Oh, how I longed once for rest on the way,
So tired and weary afar did I stray;
Peace in abundance came to me one day
Down at the cross of Jesus!

Refrain:
Now it is mine, gladness divine,
Found at the cross of Jesus!
Oh, what a wonderful blessing is mine,
Found at the cross of Jesus!

2 Sorrow I knew in the pathway of sin;
Now, praise the Lord, there is glory within!
For since I knew Him great joy mine has been—
Found at the cross of Jesus! [Refrain]

3 Will you not come and His love for you see?
Kind, tender-hearted, forgiving is He!
Joy far surpassing earth’s pleasures may be
Found at the cross of Jesus! [Refrain]
