Beneath the Cross of Jesus


G                Edim7        G

Beneath the cross of Jesus
D7                                       G  
I fain would take my stand

       B7    Em                B7  Em Em7    C           
the shadow of a mighty rock

Cmaj7 Am          C7       B          

within a weary land

G                                          C  G
a home within the wilderness

    C          E               Am
a rest upon the way

                D             D7             G           A7sus4

from the burning of the noontide heat

C               G             D6           G  

and the burden of the day


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 stricken heart
with tears two wonders I confess
the wonders of redeeming love
and my unworthiness


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
