619. Our Example

1 Jesus left a home of dazzling splendor,
For this sinful world with sorrow dim;
Humbly filling the place of a servant,
And He calls us all to follow Him.

Refrain:
Jesus, we will follow in Thy footprints,
Share Thy suffering and shame and loss:
For the glory that is set before us,
We will triumph in the Savior’s cross.

2 Jesus lived a life of self-denial,
With His visage marred by grief and woe;
But now sits in the throne with the Father,
And example leaves us here below. [Refrain]

3 If like Paul, we’re cast into the prison,
Or through burning, fiery flames should go,
Can we glory in such persecution—
Bear the image of our Lord below? [Refrain]

4 Would we be disciples of the Master,
And the splendor of His mansion share?
We must gladly endure tribulation,
Then a crown in heaven we shall wear. [Refrain]
