Beneath the Cross of Jesus 

Lyrics ~ Elizabeth C. Clephane, 1830-1869
Music ~ Frederick C. Maker, 1844-1927 

Stanza 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 noon day heat,

And the burden of the day. 



Stanza 2:

Upon that cross of Jesus

Mine eye at times can see

The very dying form of One

Who suffered there for me;

And from my smitten heart with tears

Two wonders I confess:

The wonders of His glorious love

And my own worthlessness. 



Stanza 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.
