1 "Take up your cross," the Savior said,
"if you would my disciple be;
Take up your cross with willing heart
and humbly follow after me."

2 Take up your cross; let not its weight
fill your weak spirit with alarm;
Christ's strength will bear your spirit up
and brace your heart, support your arm.

3 Take up your cross, heed not the shame,
and let your foolish pride be still;
For Christ did not refuse to die
upon a cross on Calvary's hill.

4 Take up your cross and follow Christ,
nor think till death to lay it down,
For only those who bear the cross
may hope to wear the glorious crown.
