Beneath the cross of Jesus 
  A                                D
I fain would take my stand.

The shadow of a mighty rock 
    Em      D         D/F#  
Within a weary land.

A home within the wilderness,

A rest upon the way.

And my unworthiness.

I take, O cross, thy shadow

I ask no other sunshine than

The sunshine of His face.

Content to let the world go by

To know no gain nor loss.

My sinful self my only shame,
          D     A         D 
My glory all the cross.

LYRICS

Beneath the Cross of Jesus Lyrics

from "Hymns of the Son"

Verse 1

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 burdens of the day.


Verse 2

Upon the cross of Jesus,
Mine eyes at times can see
The very dying form of One
Who suffered there for me.
And from my stricken heart with tears

Two wonders I confess,
The wonders of redeeming love
And my unworthiness.


Verse 3

I take, O cross, thy 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 nor loss.
My sinful self my only shame,

My glory all the cross.
