Lyrics

Hail the Cross of Jesus;
Lift it up on high:
Hail the mighty Signal,
Pointing to the sky!
Hail the Guide of pilgrims,
Through the desert drear!
Hail the Sign of Jesus,
Chasing far our fear!

God forbid we glory,
Save in that blest Sign--
Sign of Him who saved us
Through His love divine.
Hail the Cross of Jesus,
Lifted up on high!
Hail the mighty Signal,
Pointing to the sky!

Stands the Cross of Jesus
Foremost in the fight,
Drawing ever all men
By Its wondrous might.
Hail the Cross of Jesus,
Lifted up on high!
Hail the mighty Standard,
Pointing to the sky!

See! It moveth onward:
Gladly follow we:
Wheresoe'er It goeth
Should Christ's soldiers be.
Hail the Cross of Jesus,
Lifted up on high!
Hail the mighty Standard,
Pointing to the sky!

Lo! It reacheth Jordan,
Cleaves the surging wave,
Lighteth up the portals
Of the opening grave.
Hail the Cross of Jesus,
Lift It up on high!
Hail the guide of pilgrims,
Pointing to the sky!

Then, O then, what glory
Shines upon our eyes,
From the sunny pastures
Spread in Paradise!
Lo! the Cross of Jesus,
Pointing to the sky,
Hath His children guided
Home to victory.
