Beneath the Cross of Jesus lyrics - Hymn with Piano Music (Accurate)

Apostle Quinson Thomas Apostle Quinson Thomas

Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1872

Verse 1

Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand,

The shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land;

A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,

From the burning of the noontide heat, and the burden of the day.

Verse 2

Upon that cross of Jesus mine eye at times can see

The very dying form of One Who suffered there for me;

And from my stricken heart with tears two wonders I confess;

The wonders of redeeming love and my own worthlessness.

Verse 3

I take, O cross, thy shadow for my abiding place;

I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;

Content to let the world go by to know no gain or loss,

My sinful self my only shame, my glory all the cross.
