Representative Text

1 O, my heart is full of joy, for my sins are wash’d away,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus;
I am trusting more and more in his mercy ev’ry day,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus.

Refrain:
Clinging to the cross, where his blood was shed for me,
Clinging to the cross, where the flowing stream I see,
Clinging to the cross, where I come on bended knee;
Blessed, blessed cross of Jesus!

2 I have laid my burden down, I have cast it on the Lord,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus;
I can now believe and claim ev’ry promise in his word,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 I have found the hallow’d peace which the world can never give,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus;
I have promised by his grace while he spares me I will live
Clinging to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 I am happy in his love, I am safe beneath his care,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus;
Tho’ temptations I shall meet they shall never harm me there,
Clinging to the cross of Jesus. [Refrain]
