Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	I saw the cross of Jesus, 
	When burdened with my sin; 
	I sought the cross of Jesus, 
	To give me peace within; 
	I brought my soul to Jesus, 
	He cleansed it in His blood; 
	And in the cross of Jesus 
	I found my peace with God. 

2.	I love the cross of Jesus, 
	It tells me what I am - 
	A vile and guilty creature, 
	Saved only thro' the Lamb; 
	No righteousness nor merit, 
	No beauty can I plead; 
	Yet in the cross I glory, 
	My title there I read. 

3.	I trust the cross of Jesus, 
	In ev'ry trying hour, 
	My sure and certain refuge, 
	My never-failing tow'r; 
	In ev'ry fear and conflict, 
	I more than conqueror am; 
	Living, I'm safe, or dying, 
	Thro' Christ, the risen Lamb. 

4.	Safe in the cross of Jesus! 
	There let my weary heart 
	Still rest in peace unshaken, 
	Till with Him, ne'er to part; 
	And then in strains of glory 
	I'll sing His wondrous pow'r, 
	Where sin can never enter, 
	And death is known no more.
