1 On the cross the Savior's blood
Flowed for our salvation,
Streaming forth, a healing tide,
Unto every nation.
"God forbid! God forbid
I should ever glory
Saving in the cross of Christ,"
Cross of sacred story.
2 On the cross the Savior paid
All that I was owing,
Thanks for such a priceless gift
In my heart are glowing.
3 On the cross the Savior spoke
Many sins forgiven,
Then the pardoned sinner bore
With him into heaven.
4 Precious Savior, blessed cross!
Always keep before me;
All along the path of life,
Throw thy shadow o'er me.Source: Joy to the World: or, sacred songs for gospel meetings #104
