1. Jesus, I my cross have taken, All to leave, and follow Thee; Destitue despised, forsaken, Thou, from hence, my all shall be; Perish ev'ry fond ambition, All I've sought or hoped or known; Yet how rich is my condition: God and heav'n are still my own! 2. Let the world despise and leave me, They have left my Savior, too; Human hearts and looks deceive me, Thou art not, like man, untrue; And, while Thou shalt smile upon me, God of wisdom, love, and might, Foes may hate, and friends may shun me: Show Thy face, and all is bright. 3. Haste thee on from grace to glory, Armed by faith, and winged by prayer; Heav'n's eternal days before thee, God's own hand shall guide thee there; Soon shall close thy earthly mission, Swift shall pass thy pilgrim days; Hope shall change to glad fruition, Faith to sight, and prayer to praise.
