Jesus I My Cross Have Taken

Verse 1Jesus I my cross have taken, all to leave and follow Thee Destitute, despised, forsaken- You, from now, my all shall be So perish every fond ambition, all I’ve sought and hoped and known Yet how rich is my condition for God in Heaven You’re still my own

Verse 2 Let the world despise and leave me, they have left my Savior too Human hearts and looks deceive me but You are not like man, untrue And while I know You smile upon me, God of wisdom, love and might Foes may hate and friends may shun me, but show Your face and all is bright

Chorus For nothing on earth matters But to bring You glory So all my life I offer, to You my Lord and King

Verse 3 Hasten on from grace to glory, armed by faith and winged by prayer Heaven’s eternal days before me, God’s own hand shall guide me there And soon shall close my earthly mission, swift shall pass my pilgrim days Hope shall change to glad fruition- faith to sight and prayer to praise
