The Cross

March 23, 2017



This beautiful text is from Horatius Bonar simply titled, The Cross.


By the cross of Jesus standing,

Love our straitened souls expanding,

     Taste we now the peace and grace!

Health from yonder tree is flowing,

Heavenly light is on it glowing,

     From the blessed Sufferer's face.


Here the holy, happy greeting,

Here the calm and joyful meeting,

     God with man in glad accord;

Love that cross to us is telling,

Darkness, doubt and fear dispelling; --

     Love in Jesus Christ our Lord.


Here is pardon's pledge and token,

Guilt's strong chain for ever broken,

     Righteous peace securely made.

Brightens now the brow once shaded,

Freshens now the face once faded.

     Peace with God now makes us glad.


All the love of God is yonder,

Love above all thought and wonder,

     Perfect love that casts out fear.

Strength like dew is here distilling,

Glorious life our souls is filling,--

     Life eternal, only here!


Here the living water welleth,

Here the Rock, now smitten, telleth

     Of salvation freely given.

This the fount of love and pity,

This the pathway to the city,

     This the very gate of Heaven!
