Lift High the Cross

hymn #826
by George William Kitchin, 1887; rev. Michael Robert Newbolt, 1916

Come, Christians, follow where our Savior trod,
the Lamb victorious, Christ, the Son of God.

All newborn servants of the Crucified
bear on their brow the seal of Christ who died.

O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree,
your death has brought us life eternally.

So shall our song of triumph ever be:
praise to the Crucified for victory.

Lord Jesus Christ, we rejoice and rejoice continually in Your triumphant victory over death. For Your victory is our victory. Help us to live by it, in it, and for it. We are grateful to our depths, grateful forever. Amen.
