 Jesus I my Cross Have Taken by Russell's Hymns

Scripture(s): Mark 10:28  
Description: Lo, we have left all and have followed Thee. Mark 10:28

Jesus, I my cross have taken
All to leave and follow Thee
Destitute, despised, forsaken
Thou from hence my all shalt be
Perish every fond ambition
All I’ve sought and hoped and known
Yet how rich is my condition
God and heaven are still my own

Let the world despise and leave me
They have left my Savior too
Human hearts and looks deceive me
Thou art not, like man, untrue
And, while Thou shalt smile upon me
God of wisdom, love, and might
Foes may hate and friends may shun me
Show Thy face and all is bright

Man may trouble and distress me
¬ĎTwill but drive me to Thy breast
Life with trials hard may press me
Heaven will bring me sweeter rest
Oh ¬Ďtis not in grief to harm me
While Thy love is left to me
Oh ¬Ďtwere not in joy to charm me
Were that joy unmixed with Thee

Hasten on from grace to glory
Armed by faith and winged by prayer
Heaven’s eternal day’s before me
God’s own hand shall guide me there
Soon shall close my earthly mission
Swift shall pass my pilgrim days
Hope shall change to glad fruition
Faith to sight and prayer to praise
