O CROSS of Christ, Immortal tree,
On which our Savior died,
The world is sheltered by your arms
That bore the Crucified.
O faithful Cross, you stand unmoved
While ages run their course;
Foundation of the universe,
Creation’s binding force.
Give Glory to the Risen Christ
And to His Cross give praise
The Sign of God’s unfathomed love,
The Hope of all our days.
— Hymn from the Liturgy of the Hours
The Exaltation of the Holy Cross, September 14
