"Beneath the Cross of Jesus"
meditation. I have sung these words many, many times, but it wasn't until I
recently read them (slowly) that I was touched so powerfully by the message.
BENEATH THE CROSS OF JESUS (verses 2&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 smitten heart with tears two wonders I confess-
the wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness.
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.
-Elizabeth Cleophane, 1872
Have a great week,
