lyrics

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
Your cross of doubt and fear
Of all that you hold dear
Leaves you unwelcome here
Take up your cross

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
Your cross of craven lust
The charge in every touch
That never is enough
Take up your cross

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
Your cross of awkwardness
Makes each exchange a mess
Fills you with loneliness
Take up your cross

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
Your cross of barrenness
The ache inside your chest
That never gives you rest
Take up your cross

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
Your cross of failing health
Makes a fool of wealth
Cursing the hand you’re dealt
Take up your cross

Take up your cross and follow him
Take up your cross and follow him
The cross that brings your death
Shortens your every breath
Leads you to holiness
Take up your cross
