“Lo, we have left all and followed thee.” Mark 10. 28
H. F. Lyte 8.7.
Jesus, we our cross have taken,
All to leave and follow thee;
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,
Thou, from hence, our All shalt be.
Let the world despise and leave us;
They have left the Saviour too;
Human hearts and looks deceive us;
Thou art not, like them, untrue.
And while thou shalt smile upon us,
God of wisdom, love, and might,
Foes may hate, and friends disown us,
Show thy face, and all is bright.
Man may trouble and distress us,
’Twill but drive us to thy breast;
Life with trials hard may press us,
Heaven will bring us sweeter rest.
