Full Text

1 To the cross of Christ I cling,
To a loving, gentle friend,
All my guilt and sin I bring,
He will keep me to the end.

I am clinging, I am clinging,
I am clinging, I am clinging to the cross;
I am clinging, I am clinging,
I am clinging, I am clinging to the cross.

2 With the weight of sin and shame,
Bearing down the mind and heart,
To the Lord, in pray’r I came,
And He bade my guilt depart. [Refrain]

3 Sinner dear, though short the time,
Peace and joy for you is here,
Unto God your heart incline,
Come to Him, your pray’r He’ll hear. [Refrain]
