Simply to Thy Cross I Cling


A beautiful symbol of faith. This image of a woman clinging to a cross is sometimes paired with words from the hymn written by Augustus Toplady in 1776, Rock of Ages.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked, come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly;
Wash me, Savior, or I die.

[On the day I prepared this post, the Stone Gardens blog coincidentally carried a similar post: Symbolic Monday - Woman Hanging onto Cross. Great minds think alike!]
