Christ stilling the waves

The Trumpeteer

The White Cross in the Vale

Advent candles whispering
Heaven’s Light is glistening
There’s a white Cross in the vale
Bethlehem candescent
Calvary resplendent
There’s a white Cross in the vale.

1.
Cross of lilies, Cross of poppies
Cross of beauty, Cross of white
Ever flowering, never failing
Cross of Jesus, Lord of Light.

2.
Cross of lilies, Cross of poppies
Cross of Him, to death delivered
Crimson bower, white enflowered
Cross of Jesus, now transfigured.

3.
Cross of lilies, Cross of poppies
Cross of life and love possessed
We beholding, God enfolding
Cross of Mary, Maiden blessed.

4.
Cross of lilies, Cross of poppies
Cross of peace and sweetest rest
We adoring, love outpouring
Cross of Jesus, Saviour blest.

Lenten preacher pleads it
‘Tis only faith perceives it
There’s a white Cross in the vale.
In the midst of life there’s death
In the midst of death there’s life,
There’s a white Cross in the vale.
