By the Cross of Jesus
By the cross of Jesus standing,
Love our straitened souls expanding,
Taste we now the peace and grace!
yonder tree is flowing,
Heav’nly light is on it glowing,
From the blessed Sufferer’s face.
Here is pardon’s pledge and
Guilt’s strong chain forever broken,
Righteous peace securely made;
Brightens now the brow once shaded,
Freshens now the face once
Peace with God now makes us glad.
All the love of God is yonder,
Love above all thought and wonder,
that casts out fear!
Strength, like dew, is here distilling,
Glorious life our souls is filling,
Life eternal, only here!
Here the living water welleth;
Here the Rock, now smitten, telleth
Of salvation freely giv’n:
This the fount of love and pity,
This the pathway to the
This the very gate of Heav’n.
