Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Cross, San Francesco, Arezzo.jpg

God the Father has exalted

Jesus Christ, the Lord of all,

Who has emptied self of glory,

Took our human nature's thrall;

In obedience, He was humbled

Taking even cross and death;

Now creation shouts in wonder

"Christ is Lord" with ev'ry breath!

As the Cross is boldly lifted

And the faithful now embrace

What was once a thing so shameful,

Now the hope of all our race,

Let us, marked with Cross, and baptized,

Shout this news throughout the earth:

Through the Cross, our God has conquered!

Through it, come to His new birth!
