Take Up Thy Cross  
Recorded by The Traditional Grass
Written by Alfred Ackley

G D7
I walked one day along a country road 
G
And there a stranger journeyed too
D7
Bent low beneath the burdens of His load 
G
It was the cross the cross I knew

C G
Take up Thy cross and follow Me 
D7
I heard the blessed Savior call
G C
How can I make a lesser sacrifice 
G D7 G
When Jesus paid it all

D7
I cried Lord Jesus and He spoke my name 
G
I saw His hands all bruised and torn
D7
I stooped to kiss away the marks of shame 
G
The shame for me that He had born

Repeat #2

D7
The cross I’ll carry till the crown appears
G
The way our journey soon will end
D7
When Christ Himself shall wipe away all tears
G
And friends on fellowship with friends

Repeat #2
