The Cross it standeth fast--
Hallelujah!
The winds of hell have blown,
Yet 'tis not overthrown;
Hallelujah!
It shall stand forever.

It is the old Cross still--
Hallelujah!
On which the living One
Did for man's sin atone;
Hallelujah!
It shall stand forever.

Old Cross, on thee I lean--
Hallelujah!
Old, and yet ever new,
I glory still in you;
Hallelujah!
Thou shalt stand forever.

Beneath thy shade I sit--
Hallelujah!
O tree of health divine,
My refuge, even mine;
Hallelujah!
Thou shalt stand forever.

The blood is on thee yet--
Hallelujah!
The blood that maketh clean
The soul from stain and sin;
Hallelujah!
Thou shalt stand forever.

And yet beyond thee still--
Hallelujah!
I look and see a throne,
Christ's throne and mine in one;
Hallelujah!
Throne and Cross forever.
