1. As onward you press tow'rd the heav'nly goal,
Never lose sight of the cross;
There Jesus was nailed to redeem your soul,
Never lose sight of the cross;
On Him your iniquities were laid,
There, bleeding, and dying, your debt He paid,
A full and a perfect atonement made,—
Never lose sight of the cross.

Refrain:
O crimson cross of Calvary,
Where Jesus died to make us free,
Our only hope, our only plea,—
Never lose sight of the cross.

2. Tho' bitter the conflict with sin and wrong,
Never lose sight of the cross;
The vict'ry is sure, tho' the fight be long,
Never lose sight of the cross;
Tho' day should be turned into midnight gloom,
Tho' weary and lonely your path become,
Press onward, for surely 'twill lead you home,—
Never lose sight of the cross.

3. O wonderful, mighty, unchanging love!
Never lose sight of the cross;
Tho' God ev'ry token but this remove,
Never lose sight of the cross.
Bring Jesus your best—tho' a gift so small,
For love so amazing demands your all,
And follow where Calvary's light doth fall,—
Never lose sight of the cross.
