Representative Text

1 Take up your Cross and follow me!
Saith Christ, our blessed Lord;
If my disciples ye would be,
And have the great reward.

2 See that ye mortify your pride,
And be of humble mind;
Your lusts must all be crucifi'd
To which you are inclin'd.

3 To be oppos'd to ev'ry ill,
Is the real christian's state;
Such only do the Saviour's will,
Who share his lot and fate.

4 To follow Jesus in his way,
Where ever it may lead:
Through good and evil as it may!
Such follow him indeed.

5 To follow Christ, and him alone,
Our governour and head;
Entitles us to wear the crown,
As the apostle said.

6 The greatest bliss on earth below,
Or in the heav'n above:
Is Jesus and his Cross to know;
To taste and feel his love.
