61 In the Cross of Christ I Glory
(RATHBUN. 8,7,8,7)
Ithamar Conkey, 1847

In the cross of Christ I glory, Tow'ring o'er the wrecks of time;
All the light of sacred story Gathers round its head sublime.


When the woes of life o'er-take me, Hopes deceive, and fears an noy,
Never shall the cross forsake me; Lo! it glows with peace and joy.


When the sun of bliss is beaming Light and love up on my way,
From the cross the radiance streaming Adds new lustre to the day.


Bane and blessing, pain and pleasure, By the cross are sanctified ;

Peace is there that knows no measure, Joys that thro' all time a bide. Amen.
