Lent: Day 7

Lift High the Cross
Text: George W. Kitch­in; mod­i­fied by Mi­chael R. New­bolt in 1916, alt.
Music: Crucifer, Syd­ney H. Nicholson, 1916

Refrain

Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Till all the world adore His sacred Name.


Come, Christians, follow this triumphant sign,
The hosts of God in unity combine.

Refrain


Each newborn servant of the Crucified
Bears on the brow the seal of Him Who died.

Refrain

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised, draw the world to Thee.

Refrain

So shall our song of triumph ever be:
Praise to the Crucified for victory.

Refrain

Dear Psalmist: I love all the beautiful hymns you choose for each day of our Lenten season. Thank you for this ministry because some of the most poignant and effective words are in those we sing. Thank you so much. What you do is so beautiful and speaks to my very soul.
