I have trusted in a Savior that can save me,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross;
When I trusted, oh, the bliss and joy it gave me,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross.

Refrain

Under the shadow of the cross I am resting,
Under the shadow of the cross I am resting,
Under the shadow of the cross I am resting,
And securely Jesus lets me there abide.

There has been within my soul a new creation,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross;
Blessèd thought, to feel the full and free salvation,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross.

Refrain

Oh, I love to tell the sweet and wondrous story,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross;
Of salvation through a Savior rich in glory,
I am resting under the shadow of the cross.

Refrain
