To That Dear Cross Where Jesus Died


To that dear cross where Jesus died,
And for my sins was crucified,
My heart is clinging evermore,
And shouting glory o’er and o’er.

Refrain:
O wondrous cross, where Jesus died,
Where Christ my Lord was crucified,
The debt is paid, my soul is free,
For on the cross He died for me.

And when I hear the story told,
The story that will ne’er grow old,
Within my heart there burns a flame,
And o’er and o’er I praise His name. [Refrain]

The cross of Jesus standeth fast
‘Mid tempests wild and stormy blast;
The pow’rs of hell it hath defied,
For Jesus there was crucified. [Refrain]

The story never can be told,
On earth, or in the heav’nly fold,
For as the ages roll along,
The cross shall be my theme and song. [Refrain]
