The Message of the Cross

In the Cross of Christ I see,

All the Love of God to me;

He it was who loved and gave,

Guilty, sinful men to save.


In the Cross of Christ I know,

something of my Saviour's woes.

I may surely read therein,

all the sinfullness of sin.


In the Cross of Christ I learn

Righteous judgement to discern;

See the Substitute for me

cursed and smitten on the Tree.


There I see my Surety die

For a sinner such as I,

There my broken heart can trace,

All the riches of His grace.


At the Cross my soul finds peace,

From its burden full release;

There I may be reconciled

And confessed by God His Child
