1 Take the cross, take the cross, hold it up to the world,
With its banner of hope by the Saviour unfurled;
Hold it up, and the lost to its refuge may flee
Where the dear Saviour pleads: I am seeking for thee.
Hold it up to the world,
Hold it up to the world;
Falter never, hold it ever,
Hold it up to the world.
2 Lift it high, lift it high, let the friendless behold;
There are hearts that will weep when its story is told;
Lift it high, and the poor to its shelter may flee
Where the dear Saviour pleads: I have suffered for thee. [Refrain]
3 Take the cross, take the cross, and rejoice in the Lord;
Go ye forth, go ye forth in the strength of His word;
Hold it up, and the eye of the careless may see
Where the dear Saviour pleads: I was wounded for thee. [Refrain]
4 O the cross, blessed cross, with the blood crimson tide
Like a river of love flowing down from its side!
To the cross all may come; hold it up, and proclaim
Here is pardon and peace thro’ a Saviour’s dear name. [Refrain]
