Are you worn with griefs and fears,
Have you wasted many years?
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Have you wandered far astray,
In the darkness lost your way?
There is shelter at the cross for you.

Refrain

There is shelter at the cross for you,
There is shelter at the cross for you;
By a world of sin denied,
Jesus suffered there and died;
There is shelter at the cross for you.

Do you long for love and peace,
From the tempter seek release?
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Do you fear the snares of sin,
Do you bear its marks within?
There is shelter at the cross for you.

Refrain

Tho’ by deeds of sin defiled,
You are still the Savior’s child,
There is shelter at the cross for you.
Tho’ by doubt and fear oppressed,
In its shadow there is rest—
There is shelter at the cross for you.

Refrain
