Lift high the cross

1) Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
Till all the world adore His sacred name!

2) Come, brethren, follow where our Captain trod,
Our King victorious, Christ the Son of God.

3) Each new-born soldier of the Crucified
Bears on his brow the seal of Him who died.

4) This is the sign which Satan's legions fear
And angels veil their faces to revere.

5) Saved by this cross whereon their Lord was slain,
The sons of Adam their lost home regain.

6) From north and south, from east and west they raise
In growing unison their song of praise.

7) O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised, draw men unto Thee.

8) Let every race and every language tell
Of Him who saves our souls from death and hell.

9) Set up Thy throne, that earth's despair may cease
Beneath the shadow of its healing peace.
