Lift High The Cross

A Blessed Feast of the Elevation of the Holy Cross to everyone!

Refrain:
Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Till all the world adore His sacred name.

Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
The hosts of God in conquering ranks combine.
Refrain.

Each newborn servant of the Crucified
Bears on the brow the seal of Him who died.
Refrain.

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised, draw the world to Thee.
Refrain.

So shall our song of triumph ever be:
Praise to the Crucified for victory.
Refrain.

Words: George W. Kitchen; modified by Michael R Newbolt, 1916.
Tune:Crucifer” Sydney H. Nicholson, 1916.
