BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS

   G

Beneath the cross of Jesus 

  D/F#                          G 

I fain would take my stand

         Em                Am 

The shadow of a mighty rock 

  Am       Bb       Bm 

Within a weary land 

   G                         

A home within the wilderness 

      C    C/B     Am

A rest upon the way

                 D/F#                   G     

From the burning of the noontide heat

         G        D/F#     G 

And burden of the day

 

 

   G

Upon the cross of Jesus

         D/F#                     G

Mine eye at times can see

       Em              Am

The very dying form of One

          Am         Bb           Bm

Who suffered there for me

        G      

And from my stricken heart with tears

         C          C/B    Am

Two wonders I confess

         D/F#               G     

The wonders of redeeming love

        G       D/F#  G

And my unworthiness

 

  G

I take, O cross, thy shadow

      D/F#              G

For my abiding place

        Em            Am

I ask no other sunshine than

        Am         Bb       Bm

The sunshine of his face

       G      

Content to let the world go by

       C            C/B         Am

To know no gain nor loss

      D/F#                        G     

My sinful self my only shame

      G      D/F#     G

My glory all the cross
