In the Cross of Christ
Words by John Bowring
Music by Ithamar Conkey
"But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,
by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world."
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.
When the woes of life o'er take me,
Hopes decieve, and fear annoy,
Never shall the cross forsake me;
Lo! it glows with peace and joy.
