Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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.
