Wilburn Brothers – Take Up Thy Cross lyrics

I walked one day along a country road and there a stranger journeyed too
Bent low beneath the burden of his load it was the cross the cross I knew
Take up Thy cross and follow me I hear the blessed Saviour call
How can I make a lesser sacrifice when Jesus gave his all
[ piano ]
I cried Lord Jesus and he spoke my name I saw his hands all bruised and torn
I stooped to kiss away the marks of shame the shame for me that he had born
Take up Thy cross...
