My cross

🧡

Live a life filled with love,
following the example of Christ
(Ephesians 5:2; NLT).

1. Take up my cross, and follow Christ –
That’s all I need to do.

2. No matter what my cross may be,
I’ll take it up anew,

3. And follow him as best I can,
Accepting all he sends,

4. Whilst loving him in everyone,
Until my journey ends.

🧡
