Lord, day by day I view Thy wondrous Cross

1
Lord, day by day I view Thy wondrous Cross
    On Calvary!
And day by day I stretch my hands thereon
    And die with Thee.
2
I “glory in the Cross” most loving Lord,
    Because I know
It is the power to save and satisfy,
    Where’er I go.
3
The daily Cross becomes the deepest joy,
    For just beyond
The Cross, I clearly see how Cross and Crown
    Do correspond.
4
Oh, gracious Lord, how sweet to take from Thee
    The daily Cross!
And know that I can never separate
    Its gain and loss.
5
The daily Cross is daily loss to all
    That keeps from Thee;
The daily Cross is daily gain of all
    Thou art for me.

Oh! To know the joy of knowing the subjective cross as this writer conveys!
