Additional Information

1 Behold the cross where Life Eternal died;
God's Lamb, the Christ, our final sacrifice.
No other blood removes iniquity,
No other man redeems humanity!

Embrace the cross, and glory in its shame.
With all your heart, live worthy of His name!
Oh, follow Christ, regardless of the cost;
give everything to Jesus; embrace the cross

2 Take up your cross upon the Calvary road,
With steadfast faith remain beneath the load.
Consider all the suffering Jesus knew;
Consider Him; His grace will carry you! Chorus

3 Proclaim the cross till every nation hears
That for our sin the Son of God was pierced.
In Jesus' name, go forth in Gospel might!
In Jesus' love, declare Christ crucified! Chorus

4 Lay down your cross before the nail-scarred feet
Of Him Who reigns in royal majesty.
Exchange your cross for heaven's great reward.
Exchange your crown for Jesus Christ the Lord! Chorus

Includes Wide Format PowerPoint file!

Updated Format! Beginning in November of 2016, we changed the way we formatted our PowerPoint files. The font is larger and the staff lines are bolder, making the songs easier to read from a greater distance, including smaller screens/monitors in the rear of the sanctuary.

All songs digitized previous to that date are in the "older" format.
