In the Cross of Christ I Glory
John Bowring, 1825
|In the Cross of Christ I glory,|
Towering o'er the wrecks of time.
All the light of sacred story
Gathers round its head sublime.
2. When the woes of life o'ertake me,
|3. When the sun of bliss is beaming|
Light and love upon my way,
From the Cross the radiance streaming
Adds more luster to the day.
4. Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure,
