#211: Hallelujah for the Cross!

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

The cross, it standeth fast — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Defying ev’ry blast — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

The winds of hell have blown, The world its hate hath shown,

Yet it is not overthrown — Hallelujah for the cross!

REFRAIN

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah for the cross;

Hallelujah, hallelujah, it shall never suffer loss!

2

It is the old cross still — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Its triumph let us tell — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

The grace of God here shone Thru Christ, the blessed Son.

Who did for sin atone — Hallelujah for the cross!

REFRAIN

3

T’was here the debt was paid — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

Our sins on Jesus laid — Hallelujah, hallelujah!

So round the cross we sing Of Christ, our offering,

Of Christ, our living King — Hallelujah for the cross!

REFRAIN
