In the Cross of Christ
Words by John Bowring
Music by Ithamar Conkey

Galatians 6:14
"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.
