Representative Text

1 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
If His disciple you would be;
Forsake the world and all its treasures;
And follow Him, His word believe.

Refrain:
Take up your cross and follow Jesus,
Give up the world and all its sin;
All needful grace He’ll surely give you;
Take up your cross and follow Him.

2 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
Tho’ it bring sorrow, loss and pain;
All your afflictions He’ll remember—
Crown you with everlasting gain. [Refrain]

3 Take up your cross, and follow Jesus,
Mark well His footsteps all the way;
Live but to honor and obey Him;
Follow Him humbly all the day. [Refrain]

4 Be not asham’d to follow Jesus,
AS He has taught you in His word;
Then when life’s conflicts all are over,
You will receive the great reward. [Refrain]
