Take Up The Cross
Fanny J. Crosby
Rev .Robert Lowry

If my disciple thou wouldst be, 
Take up the cross and follow me;
Rough tho' the journey, strait the road, 
This is the way that lead to God;
Freely I give myself for thee; 
Take up the cross and follow me.

What if the world reproach thy name? 
Take up the cross, despise the shame;
Glory in this, that love divine 
Brings thee a ransom, makes thee mine;
Think of the thorns I wore for thee; 
Take up the cross and follow me.

Bearing the cross in good or ill, 
Trusting the hand that guides thee still,
Soon thou wilt reach the gates of light, 
Soon will thy faith be chang'd to sight;
There is a crown of life for Thee; 
Take up the cross and follow me.

CHORUS

Take up the cross, Take up the cross, 
Take up the cross and follow me.
