Above the hills of time


    • Above the hills of time the Cross is gleaming; 
    • Fair as the sun when night has turned to day; 
    • And from it love's pure light is richly streaming 
    • To cleanse the heart and banish sin away. 

    • To this dear Cross the eyes of men are turning 
    • Today as in the ages lost to sight; 
    • And so for Thee O Christ, men's hearts are yearning 
    • As ship-wrecked seamen yearn for morning light. 

    • The Cross, O Christ, Thy wondrous love revealing, 
    • Awakes our hearts as with the light of morn; 
    • And pardon o'er our sinful spirits stealing 
    • Tells us that we, in Thee, have been reborn. 

    • Like echoes to sweet temple bells replying, 
    • Our hearts, O Lord make answer to Thy love; 
    • And we will love Thee with a love undying, 
    • Till we are gathered to Thy home above
