Shadow of the Cross

The chorus was inspired by a conversation with Yvonne Taylor. The verses are Charles Wesley’s “Jesus, Lover of my Soul.”




I will stand in the shadow of the cross
Where mercy flows, forgiveness flows
And I will fall on the mercy of my God
For there your mercy flows

Jesus, lover of my soul, Let me to Thy bosom fly
While the nearer waters roll, While the tempest still is high
Hide me o my Savior hide Till the storm of life is past
Safe into the haven guide; o receive my soul at last

Other refuge have I none; Hangs my helpless soul on Thee
Leave o leave me not alone, Still support and comfort me
All my trust on Thee is stayed, All my help from Thee I bring
Cover my defenseless head with the shadow of Thy wing


You, O Christ, are all I want, More than all in you I find
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, Heal the sick and lead the blind
Just and holy is Your name, I am all unrighteousness
False and full of sin I am, You are full of truth and grace

Plenteous grace with You is found, Grace to cover all my sin
Let the healing streams abound, Make and keep me pure within
You of life the fountain are, Freely let me drink of Thee
Spring up now within my heart, Rise to all eternity.
