Lift High The Cross (Crucifer, Organ, 11 Verses)

Lift High The Cross Lyrics

 

Refrain:
Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
’til all the world adores his sacred name.

1. Come, brethren, follow where our captain trod,
our King victorious, Christ the Son of God. Refrain:

2. Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
the hosts of God in conquering ranks combine. Refrain:

3. Each new-born soldier of the Crucified
bears on his brow the seal of him who died. Refrain:

4. This is the sign which Satan’s legions fear
and angels veil their faces to revere: Refrain:

5. Saved by the cross whereon their Lord was slain
the sons of Adam their lost home regain. Refrain:

6. From north and south, from east and west they raise
in growing unison their song of praise. Refrain:

7. O Lord once lifted on the glorious tree
as thou hast promised, draw us unto thee. Refrain:

8. Let every race and every language tell
of him who saves our souls from death and hell. Refrain:

9. From farthest regions let them homage bring
and on his cross adore their Saviour King. Refrain:

10. Set up thy throne, that earth’s despair may cease
beneath the shadow of its healing peace. Refrain:

11. For thy blest cross which doth for all atone
creation’s praises rise before thy throne:
Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
’til all the world adores his sacred name.

Take Up Thy Cross, The Saviour Said (Breslau, Organ, 6 Verses)

Take Up Thy Cross, The Saviour Said Lyrics

Also known as Take Up Your Cross. Suitable for: Lent, Passiontide, Good Friday

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

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

3. Take up thy cross, nor heed the shame,
Nor let thy foolish pride rebel;
Thy Lord for thee the cross endured,
And saved thy soul from death and hell.

4. Take up thy cross then in His strength,
And calmly sin’s wild deluge brave,
’Twill guide thee to a better home,
It points to glory o’er the grave.

5. Take up thy cross and follow Christ,
Nor think til death to lay it down;
For only those who bear the cross
May hope to wear the glorious crown.

6. To Thee, great Lord, the One in Three,
All praise forevermore ascend:
O grant us in our home to see
The heavenly life that knows no end.
