Hallelujah for the Cross

I.
The cross, it standeth fast!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Defying ev’ry blast!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The winds of hell have blown,
The world its hate hath shown,
Yet it is not overthrown!
Hallelujah for the cross.

Chorus:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
hallelujah for the cross;
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
it shall never suffer loss!

II.
It is the old cross still!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Its triumph let us tell!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
The grace of God here shone
Thru Christ, the blessed Son,
Who did for sin atone!

(Back to Chorus)

III.
‘Twas here the debt was paid!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Our sins on Jesus laid!
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
So round the cross we sing
Of Christ, our offering,
Of Christ our living King!
Hallelujah for the cross.
