Beneath the Cross of Jesus-uccpako

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.

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 smitten heart with tears,
Two wonders I confess:
The wonders of his glorious love
And the own worthlessness.

I take o cross thy shadow
For my abiding place;
I ask no other sunshine
 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!
