Lift the Cross High

If distressed by trials or temptations,
trust in God to be there;
knowing whose side to be on
and going to Him in prayer.

Read the Bible daily
to get the right instruction.
Following the wrong way
only leads to destruction.

Listen to the right people
with wholesome standards.
Follow the right leader;
always going forward.

The leader is a forgiving God
who sent His Son as Savior
and helps us in our growing faith
to grow even much greater.

The battle rages on
but we can win the fight
with God on our side
making everything alright.

Raise the white flag
for it is to God we surrender.
The secret weapon the Cross;
God our Shield and defender.

Lift the Cross high like a trophy
and live this day for His glory.
Live it with total passion
and be ready to tell your story.
