80. BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS

 

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 noontide heat
And the burden of the day

 

VERSE 2

O safe and happy shelter
O refuge tried and sweet
O trysting place where Heaven's love
And Heaven's justice meet!

 

As to the holy patriarch
That wondrous dream was giv'n
So seems my Savior's cross to me
A ladder up to heav'n

 

NOT IN PRAISE FOR THE LORD

There lies beneath its shadow
but on the further side
The darkness of an awful grave
that gapes both deep and wide

 

And there between us stands the cross
two arms outstretched to save
A watchman set to guard the way
from that eternal grave

 

VERSE 3

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 own worthlessness

 

VERSE 4

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

114. CONFÍO YO EN CRISTO

 

Confío yo en Cristo
Que en la cruz murió
Y por su muerte, listo
Voy a la gloria yo

 

Con sangre tan valiosa
Mis culpas lava Él
La derramó copiosa
El santo Emanuel

 

VERSO 2

Me cubre tu justicia
De plena perfección
Tú eres mi delicia
Mi eterna salvación

 

Jesús, en ti descanso
Reposo Tú me das
Con calma yo avanzo
Al cielo, donde estás

 

VERSO 3

Venir a Ti me invitas
A disfrutar, Señor
Delicias infinitas
Y celestial amor

 

Espero yo mirarte
Oír tu dulce voz
Espero alabarte
¡Mi Salvador, mi Dios!
