In Soul Food on January 24, 2012 by The Spillover

Jesus, I my cross have taken
All to leave and follow Thee
Destitute, despised, forsaken
Thou from hence my all shall be

Perish ev’ry fond ambition
All I’ve sought or hoped or known
Yet how rich is my condition
God and heav’n are still my own

–Henry Lyte (1793-1847)
