Lift High the Cross
Lyrics / Letras
Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
till all the world adore his sacred name.
1. Come, brethen, follow where our Savior trod,
our King victorious, Christ, the Son of God.
2. Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
the hosts of God in conqu’ring ranks combine.
3. O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
as thou hast promised, draw men unto thee.
4. Thy kingdom come, that earth’s despair may cease
beneath the shadow of its healing peace.
5. For thy blest cross which doth for us atone,
creation’s praises rise before thy throne.
