Lift high the cross; the love of Christ proclaim,
Till all the world adore His sacred name.
1.Come, Christians, follow where our Savior trod,
Our King victorious, Christ, the Son of God.
2.Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
The hosts of God in conquering ranks combine.
3.O Lord, once lifted on this glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised, draw men unto Thee.
4.Set up Thy throne, that earth's despair may cease
Beneath the shadow of its healing peace.
5.For Thy blest cross which doth for all atone,
Creation's praises rise before Thy throne.
