Representative Text

1 On Calvary's distant mountain
The cross of faith I see,
Where once the Lord of glory
Was crucified for me.

The cross of my Redeemer,
O may I still defend,
And thro' the grace He giveth
Be faithful to the end.

2 As on that cross extended,
He suffered bled and died,
To sinful tho'ts and pleasures
May I be crucified. [Chorus]

3 He bore that cross with patience
Thro' sorrow dark and sin,
He bids me now believing
Take up my cross for Him. [Chorus]

4 Had I no foes to conquer
No cross on earth to bear,
A victor's crown of triumph,
I could not hope to wear. [Chorus]
