“Upon that cross of Jesus, mine eye at times can see, the very dying form of One who suffered there for me; and from my smitten heart with tears, two wonders I confess: The wonders of redeeming love and my unworthiness! I take, O Cross, thy shadow for my abiding place. I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of His face! Content to let the world go by to know no gain nor loss, my...
