Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken,
All To Leave And Follow Thee;
Destitute, Despised, Forsaken,
Thou From Hence My All Shalt Be.
Perish Every Fond Ambition,
All I’ve Sought Or Hoped Or Known;
Yet How Rich Is My Condition,
God And Heaven Are Still My Own.

Man May Trouble And Distress Me,
‘Twill But Drive Me To Thy Breast;
Life With Trials Hard May Press Me,
Heaven Will Bring Me Sweeter Rest.
O ‘Tis Not In Grief To Harm Me
While Thy Love Is Left To Me;
O ‘Twere Not In Joy To Charm Me,
Were That Joy Unmixed With Thee.

Take, My Soul, Thy Full Salvation,
Rise Over Sin And Fear And Care;
Joy To Find In Every Station
Something Still To Do Or Bear;
Think What Spirit Dwells Within Thee,
What A Father’s Smile Is Thine,
What A Saviour Died To Win Thee:
Child Of Heaven, Shouldst Thou Repine?

Hasten On From Grace To Glory,
Armed By Faith And Winged By Prayer;
Heaven’s Eternal Day’s Before Thee,
God’s Own Hand Shall Guide Thee There.
Soon Shall Close Thy Earthly Mission,
Swift Shall Pass Thy Pilgrim Days;
Hope Soon Change To Glad Fruition,
Faith To Sight, And Prayer To Praise.
