A Charm By The Holy Cross

Help, cross, fairest of trees,
In branches bearing both fruit and flower!
Help me, best banner, foolishness to flee,
Staff and strength full of succor!
On land, on sea, wherever I be,
From burning fire my home,
Help me, Christ's tree, sign of pity,
Help me that I be not alone.
