Representative Text

1 To Thy cross, dear Christ, I’m clinging,
All my refuge and my plea;
Matchless is Thy loving-kindness,
Else it had not stooped to me.

Refrain:
Oh, ‘tis glory! oh, ‘tis glory!
Oh, ‘tis glory in my soul,
For I’ve touched the hem of His garment,
And His pow’r doth make me whole.

2 Long my heart hath heard Thee calling,
But I thrust aside Thy grace;
Yet, O boundless condescension,
Love is shining from Thy face. [Refrain]

3 Love eternal, light eternal,
Close me safely, sweetly in;
Saviour, let Thy balm of healing,
Ever keep me free from sin. [Refrain]
