This my story

Representative Text

1 O the blessed cross of Christ my story!
There a heavy laden soul he found me;
With the tender chords of love He bound me,
Turned my sorrow into joy and song.

To the cross will I cling,
Till I reach the golden city of glory;
To the cross will I cling,
Till my Saviour’s crown of life I wear.

2 O the blessed cross of Christ my story!
There He cleansed me in the fount of healing;
And the wonders of His grace revealing,
Clothed my spirit in a robe of praise. [Refrain]

3 O the blessed cross of Christ my story!
Though I tell it o’er and o’er forever,
Yet my thankful heart shall weary never
Of a story that I love so well. [Refrain]
