Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Beneath the cross of Jesus 
	I fain would take my stand, 
	The shadow of a mighty rock 
	Within a weary land; 
	A home within the wilderness, 
	A rest upon the way, 
	From the burning of the noontide heat, 
	And the burden of the day. 

2.	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 His glorious love 
	And my unworthiness. 

3.	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 or loss, 
	My sinful self my only shame, 
	My glory all the cross.
