The Story Of The Cross Where Jesus Died


The story of the cross where Jesus died
Has often been proclaimed as tidings glad to all;
But He who there for me was crucified
Is precious as when first the news I heard.

Chorus:
The story of the cross where Jesus died,
The story of the cross has not lost its charm for me;
I tell it ev’ryday, it cheers me on my way,
The story of the cross has not lost its charm for me.

No other theme can boast such deathless fame,
And by no other truth have souls been so inspired;
The glories of the cross to Christ acclaim
The right of way in ev’ry heart and realm. [Chorus]

a thousand times and more I’ve heard it told,
But still I love to hear it smusic fill the air;
To all the erring race the cross shines bold,
And points the way to life and back to God. [Chorus]
