Take Up Your Cross, the Savior Said Lyrics
1 Take up your cross, the Savior said,
If you would my disciple be;
Deny yourself, the world forsake,
And humbly follow after me.
2 Take up your cross, be not ashamed!
Let not disgrace your spirit fill!
For God himself endured to die
Upon a cross, on Calvary’s hill.
3 Take up your cross, which gives you strength,
Which makes your trembling spirit brave:
‘Twill guide you to a better home
And lead to victory o’er the grave.
4 Take up your cross, and follow Christ,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only they who bear the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.
