Ripley

8, 7

Arranged by L. Mason

From Gregorian Chant

L. Mason

1.

Jesus, I my cross have taken,

All to leave, and follow thee;

Naked, poor, despised, forsaken,

Thou, from hence, my all shalt be:

Let the world neglect and leave me,

They have left my Savior, too;

Human hopes have oft deceived me;

Thou art faithful, thou art true;

2.

Perish earthly fame and treasure!

Come, disaster, scorn and pain!

In thy service, pain is pleasure;

With thy favor, loss is gain.

O 'tis not in grief to harm me,

While thy bleeding love I see,

O 'tis not in joy to charm me,

When that love is hid from me.
