Representative Text

1 Shadows deep across the world,
Hide the path I fain would go;
Oft in dang’rous paths I’m hurl’d,
Fill’d with doubt and fear and woe.

Blaze on, then, O Cross of Glory,
Flame out grandly thro’ the night;
Flame on, flame on in thy beauty,
Fill the darken’d world with light.

2 Bursting out upon the gloom,
Flames the cross in beauty bright;
I can shun my dreaded doom,
If I follow in its light. [Refrain]

3 As the moon marks all the night,
Silver paths across the sea,
Mark, O cross, a way of light,
Thro’ this world’s dark night for me. [Refrain]

4 When the morn breaks in the east,
I shall stand beneath thy arms,
Safe beside thee I shall rest,
Safe from all the world’s alarms. [Refrain]

5 Gate of Paradise thou art,
Ever open to my feet;
Shining thro’ thee to my heart,
Heaven’s beauteous light I greet. [Refrain]

6 So I hope at last to stand,
Where there shall be no more night;
One of heaven’s praising band,
Led there by thy blessed light. [Refrain]
