The Cross It Standeth Fast


The cross it standeth fast –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Defying ev’ry blast –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The winds of hell have blown,
The world its hate hath shown,
Yet it is not overthrown –
Hallelujah for the cross!

Refrain:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah for the cross;
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
it shall never suffer loss!

It is the old cross still –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Its triumph let us tell –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The grace of God here shone
Thru Christ, the blessed Son,
Who did for sin atone –
Hallelujah for the cross! [Refrain]

‘Twas here the debt was paid –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Our sins on Jesus laid –
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
So round the cross we sing
Of Christ, our offering,
Of Christ, our living King –
Hallelujah for the cross! [Refrain]
