Cling to the Crucified! - Abide in him
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Abide in him.

"Tecum volo vulnerari
te libenter amplexari
      in cruce desidero." (Old Hymn)

1. Cling to the Crucified!
        His death is life to thee;
        life for eternity.
    His pains thy pardon seal;
    his stripes thy bruises heal;
        his cross proclaims thy peace,
        bids every sorrow cease.
    His blood is all to thee,
      it purges thee from sin;
    it sets thy spirit free,
      it keeps the conscience clean.
Cling to the Crucified!

2. Cling to the Crucified!
        His is a heart of love,
        full as the hearts above;
    its depths of sympathy
    are all awake for thee;
        his countenance is light,
        even in the darkest night.
    That love shall never change,
      that light shall ne'er grow dim;
    charge thou thy faithless heart
      to find its all in him.
Cling to the Crucified!

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope I, 1878, 98-99.
