God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.@Galatians 6:14

Clinging to the cross so precious,
Trusting in the Savior’s name;
Fearlessly His blessèd story,
To the lost of earth proclaim.

Refrain

Clinging to the cross, my Savior,
I am trusting all to Thee;
Clinging to the cross of Calvary,
Where Thy blood was shed for me!

To the cross of Calvary clinging,
Peace and rapture all may know;
For on those who come believing,
Precious blessings He’ll bestow.

Refrain

Clinging to the cross for refuge,
When the tempest rages wild;
Jesus in His great compassion
Keeps from harm each lowly child.

Refrain

Clinging to the cross till even,
When my vigil shall be o’er;
And I go to dwell forever
On the shining heav’nly shore.

Refrain
