Lord, day by day I view Thy wondrous Cross
And day by day I stretch my hands thereon
And die with Thee.
I "glory in the Cross" most loving Lord,
Because I know
It is the power to save and satisfy,
Where'er I go.
The daily Cross becomes the deepest joy,
For just beyond
The Cross, I clearly see how Cross and Crown
Oh, gracious Lord, how sweet to take from Thee
The daily Cross!
And know that I can never separate
Its gain and loss.
The daily Cross is daily loss to all
That keeps from Thee;
The daily Cross is daily gain of all
Thou art for me.
