1 Be-neath the cross of Je-sus I fain would take my stand
2 Up-on that cross of Je-sus Mine eye at times can see
3 I take, O cross, thy shad-ow For my a - bid-ing place;
Am B/G C6 Caug Dm C7m F6 F7 E
1 The shad-ow of a might-y rock With -in a wea-ry land;
2 The ver-y dy -ing form of One Who suf-fered there for me;
3 I ask no oth-er sun -shine than the sun-shine of His face;
Am Am9 F A/C# Dm
1 A home with-in the wil-der-ness, A rest up -on the way,
2 And from my smit-ten heart with tears Two won-ders I con - fess
3 Con-tent to let the world go by, To know no gain nor loss,
G G7 C C/F F C G G7 C
1 From the burn-ing of the noon-tide heat, And the bur-den of the day.
2 The won -ders of re -deem-ing love And my un -wor-thi-ness.
3 My sin -ful self my on - ly shame, My glo -ry all the cross.
