Alt. Lyrics

jesus, i've taken my cross
all to leave and follow thee
jesus, i've taken my cross
all to leave and follow thee

destitute, despised, forsaken
all to leave and follow thee
all to leave and follow thee
jesus

perish every fond ambition
all i've sought or hoped or known
yet how rich is my condition
god and heaven are all my own
god and heaven are all my own
my own, they're my own
they're my own, my own

man may trouble to distress me
to drive my heart to the cross
man may trouble to distress me
to drive this heart to the cross

resolute, reborn, reborn
reborn, i'm reborn, reborn, reborn

jesus, i've taken my cross
all to leave and follow thee
perish every fond ambition
all i've sought or hoped or known
yet how rich is my condition
god and heaven are all my own
god and heaven are all my own

i'm waiting for my man
26 dollars in my hand
yeah i'm waiting for my man
26 dollars in my hand
hey white boy (what?)
what you doin' uptown
hey white boy (what?)
what you doin' uptown
hey what are you doing chasing all those pretty women around
jesus, jesus

the destitute
