1. Be-neath the cross of Je-sus I fain would take my stand,
The shad-ow of a might-y rock With-in a wea-ry land;
A home with-in the wil-der-ness, A rest up-on the way,
From the burn-ing of the noon-tide heat, And the bur-den of
2. Up-on the [or ]
cross of Je-sus Mine eye at times can see
The ver-y dy-ing form of One Who suf-fered there for me;
And from my smit-ten heart with tears Two won-ders I
The won-ders of his glo-rious love And my un-wor-thi-ness.
3. I take, O cross, thy shad-ow For my a-bid-ing place;
I ask no oth-er sun-shine than The sun-shine of his face;
Con-tent to let the world go by, To know no gain nor loss.
My sin-ful self my on-ly shame, My glo-ry all the cross.
