In His Own Raiment Clad

961Story of the Cross

1In His own raiment clad
With His blood dyed;
Women walk sorrowing
By His side.
2Heavy that Cross to Him–
Weary the weight–
One who will help Him waits
At the gate.
3See! They are traveling
On the same road
Simon is sharing with
Him the load.
4Oh, whither wandering,
Bear they that tree?
He Who first carries it,
Who is He?
5Follow to Calvary–
Tread where He trod–
He Who forever was
Son of God.
6You who would love Him, stand,
Gaze at His face;
Tarry awhile on your
Earthly race.
7As the swift moments fly
Through the Blest Week,
Read the great story the
Cross will speak.
8Is there no beauty to
You who pass by
In that lone Figure which
Marks the sky?
9On the Cross lifted,
Thy face we scan–
Bearing that Cross for us,
Son of Man.
10Thorns form Thy diadem,
Rough wood Thy throne–
For us Thy blood is shed–
Us alone.
11No pillow under Thee
To rest Thy Head–
Only the splintered Cross
Is Thy bed.
12Nails pierce Thy Hands and Feet,
Thy Side the spear;
No voice is nigh to say
Help is near.
13Shadows of midnight fall,
Though it is day–
Thy friends and kinsfolk stand
Far away.
14Loud is Thy bitter cry:
Sunk on Thy breast
Hangeth Thy bleeding Head
Without rest.
15Loud scoffs the dying thief,
Who mocks at Thee–
Can it, my Savior, be
All for me?
16Gazing afar from Thee,
Silent and lone,
Stand those few weepers Thou
Call’st Thine own.
17I see Thy Title, Lord,
Inscribed above–
“Jesus of Nazareth,”
King of Love!
18What, O my Savior!
Here didst Thou see,
Which made Thee suffer and
Die for me?
19Child of My grief and pain–
Watched by My love,
I came to call thee to
Realms above.
20I saw thee wandering
Far off from Me:
In love I seek for thee–
Do not flee.
21For thee My blood I shed–
For thee alone:
I came to purchase thee
For Mine own.
22Weep not for My grief,
Child of My love–
Strive to be with Me in
Heaven above.
23Oh, I will follow Thee,
Star of my soul,
Through the deep shades of life
To the goal.
24Yes, let Thy Cross be borne
Each day by me–
Mind not how heavy, if
But with Thee.
25Lord, if Thou only wilt
Make us Thine own,
Give no companion, save
Thee alone.
26Grant through each day of life
To stand by Thee:
With Thee, when morning breaks,
Ever to be. Amen.
Luke9:23And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Luke14:27And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.
John19:30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
