96. In the Cross of Christ We Glory

1 In the cross of Christ we glory,
Towering o'er the wrecks of time;
All the light of sacred story
Gathers 'round its head sublime.

Refrain:
'Tis the cross of our salvation,
May we love it more and more,
And, with heavenly exultation,
Sing its glories o'er and o'er.

2 When the woes of life o'ertake us,
Hopes deceive, and fears annoy,
Never shall the cross forsake us;
Lo! it glows with peace and joy. [Refrain]

3 Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
By the cross are sanctified;
Peace is there that knows no measure,
Joys that through all time abide. [Refrain]
