Take Up Thy Cross
Recorded by The Wilburn Brothers
Written by Alfred Ackley

C G7
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 Savior call
How can I make a lesser sacrifice
C G7 C
When Jesus gave His all

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

Repeat #2
