1. "Take up your cross," the Savior said, "If you would My disciple be; Deny yourself, the world forsake, And humbly follow after Me." 2. Take up your cross; let not its weight Fill your weak spirit with alarm; His strength shall bear your spirit up, And brace your heart and nerve your arm. 3. Take up your cross, heed not the shame; Let not your foolish pride rebel; The Lord for us the cross endured, To save our souls from death and hell. 4. Take up your cross and follow Christ; Think not till death to lay it down; For only those who bear the cross May hope to wear the glorious crown.
