On Calvary’s distant mountain
The cross of faith I see,
Where once the Lord of glory
Was crucified for me.

Refrain

The cross of my Redeemer,
O may I still defend,
And through the grace He giveth
Be faithful to the end.

As on that cross extended,
He suffered, bled and died,
To sinful thoughts and pleasures
May I be crucified.

Refrain

He bore that cross with patience;
Through sorrow dark and sin,
He bids me now, believing,
Take up my cross for Him.

Refrain

Had I no foes to conquer
No cross on earth to bear,
A victor’s crown of triumph,
I could not hope to wear.

Refrain
