Lyrics

“Take up your cross,” the Savior said,
“if you would my disciple be;
deny yourself, the world forsake,
and humbly follow after me.”
Take up your cross, let not its weight
fill your weak spirit with alarm;
Christ’s strength shall bear your spirit up
and brace your heart and nerve your arm.
Take up your cross, heed not the shame,
and let your foolish heart be still;
the Lord for you accepted death
upon a cross, on Calvary’s hill.
Take up your cross, then, in Christ’s strength,
and calmly every danger brave:
it guides you to abundant life
and leads to victory o’er the grave.
