Oppressed with noonday's scorching heat - The Shadow of the Cross (Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The Shadow of the Cross.

1. Oppressed with noonday's scorching heat,
  to yonder cross I flee;
beneath its shelter take my seat;
  no shade like this for me!

2. Beneath that cross clear waters burst,
  a fountain sparkling free;
and there I quench my desert thirst, –
  no spring like this for me!

3. A stranger here, I pitch my tent
  beneath this spreading tree;
here shall my pilgrim life be spent, –
  no home like this for me!

4. For burdened ones a resting-place,
  beside that cross I see;
here I cast off my weariness, –
  no rest like this for me!

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope I, 1878, 112-113.
