Beneath the Cross of Jesus

Beneath the cross of Jesus I fain would take my stand
The shadow of a mighty rock within a weary land;
A home within the wilderness, a rest upon the way,
From the burning of the noontide heat and the burden of the day.

Upon that cross of Jesus my eyes at times can see
The very dying form of One who suffered there for me;
And from my smitten heart with tears, two wonders I confess -
The wonders of His glorious love and my unworthiness.

I take, O cross, the shadow for my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face;
Content to let the world go by, to know no gain or loss,
My sinful self, my only shame; my glory all the cross.
