Take Up Thy Cross

Poet: Charles William Everest

Take up thy cross, the Saviour said,
If thou wouldst My disciple be;
Deny thyself, the world forsake,
And humbly follow after Me.

Take up thy cross; let not its weight
Fill thy weak soul with vain alarm;
His strength shall bear thy spirit up,
And brace thy heart, and nerve thine arm.

Take up thy cross, nor heed the shame,
Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
The Lord for thee the cross endured
To save thy soul from death and hell.

Take up thy cross, then, in His strength,
And calmly every danger brave;
Twill guide thee to a better home,
And lead to victory o'er the grave.

Take up thy cross, and follow Christ,
Nor think till death to lay it down;
For only he who bears the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.


How To Know Joy
Greta Zwaan, ©2010


I want a life of joy, reflecting who I am;
I want the world to know where I belong.
My heart's desire is that Christ should be revealed,
That faith would be real sure and love real strong.

That others through my life would recognize my Lord,
Confirming how my walk is greatly changed.
For I now have new life, for I've been born again,
My life through Christ is fully rearranged.

All that I was before is banished to the past,
My slate is clean, my sins are washed away.
No efforts of my own can claim this as reward,
It's through salvation on this glorious day.

It's Christ's great sacrifice, His death upon the cross,
All done in love and of His own accord.

Through Him is my joy, I've righteousness in Christ,
A grace bestowed on me while yet in sin.
The honor goes to Him, the privileges are mine,
The power to live my life complete within.

His suffering set me free, His death has made me whole,
His resurrection opened up the door.
I now claim heaven's peace, I have no cause for fear,
I'll live and reign with Christ forever more.


Follow Jesus Quotes

Jesus Christ died to save us from our sins; we tend to concentrate on that merciful fact. But isn't it also true He lived to show us a lifestyle free from sin?
So, wouldn't following in his footsteps be something like preventative medicine?
