If You Would Follow After Christ!

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

If you would follow after Christ,
Your life you must lay down;
Deny yourself, yes count the cost,
If you would have the crown.

If you would follow after Christ,
All selfishness forsake;
Your heart, your life, to Him must trust,
Your cross each day up-take.

If you would follow after Christ,
Then yield your mind and will;
His love is good, his rule is best,
God’s holy plan fulfil.

If you would follow after Christ,
Then where He goes, go too;
Through every trial, test you must,
From Jesus take your cue.

If you would follow after Christ,
And win the prize at last;
Be pure, be clean, discard all lust,
In all things, Jesus first.
