1 The story of the cross where Jesus died
Has often been proclaimed as tidings glad to all;
But He who there for me was crucified
Is precious as when first the news I heard.

Chorus:
The story of the cross where Jesus died,
The story of the cross has not lost its charm for me;
I tell it ev'ryday, it cheers me on my way,
The story of the cross has not lost its charm for me.

2 No other theme can boast such deathless fame,
And by no other truth have souls been so inspired;
The glories of the cross to Christ acclaim
The right of way in ev'ry heart and realm. [Chorus]

3 a thousand times and more I've heard it told,
But still I love to hear it smusic fill the air;
To all the erring race the cross shines bold,
And points the way to life and back to God. [Chorus]
