Take Up Your Cross

  1. “Take up your cross,” the Savior said,
    “if you would my disciple be;
    take up your cross with willing heart,
    and humbly follow after me.”
  2. 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.
  3. 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 Calv’ry’s hill.
  4. Take up your cross, then, in Christ’s strength,
    and calmly ev’ry danger brave:
    it guides you to abundant life
    and leads to vict’ry o’er the grave.
