362 ~ Lift High the Cross



Refrain

Lift high the Cross, the love of Christ proclaim,
Till all the world adore His sacred name.


1

Come, Christians, follow where our Captain trod,
Our King victorious, Christ, the Son of God.


2

Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
The hosts of God in conqu'ring ranks combine.


3

All newborn soldiers of the Crucified
Bear on their brows the seal of Him who died.


4

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
As Thou hast promised, draw men unto Thee.


5

So shall our song of triumph ever be:
Praise to the Crucified for victory!
