1. We meet at the cross of Christ today,
The symbol of His giving;
And long for a fitting word to say,
How sweet the peace of living.

Refrain
Under the cross, the crimson cross,
Under the cross of Jesus;
Under the cross, the crimson cross,
Under the cross of Jesus!

2. We meet at the cross of Christ to sing
The sweetness of its story;
And still to the cross of Christ we cling,
Resplendent yet with glory— [Refrain]

3. We meet at the cross of Christ to bow
In earnest, silent pleading;
We think of the thorns upon His brow,
And lo, our hearts are bleeding— [Refrain]

4. We meet at the cross of Christ: O men,
Was ever love so eager?
We wait, as we search our hearts again—
O human love, how meager! [Refrain]

5. We meet at the cross of Christ to wait
The fullness of His blessing;
We bring empty hands so late, so late—
And lips so late confessing— [Refrain]
