Lift High the Cross (adapted by Shirley Erena Murray)
Refrain: Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adore his glorious name!
Come, Christian people, sing your praises, shout!
if we are silent, even stones cry out.
Jesus, you wept to see our human strife,
teach us compassion for each human life.
Peace was your plea, and peace your loving theme,
let peace be our passport, peace a living dream.
Great is the cost of walking on this road,
to follow and suffer with the Son of God.
Worlds to be born and children yet to be
come, take up this song into eternity.
