Theme: Life in Christ

    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,
    The Lamb victorious, Christ, the Son of God.

2.  Each newborn servant of the Crucified
    Bears on the brow the seal of Christ who died.

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

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