Hymn Text: If Like the Savior We Would Live

Title: If Like the Savior We Would Live
Meter: 8 8 8 8 D

1.
If like the Savior we would live
Then like the Savior, we must be
Prepared to bear our cross alone
That others might have agency.

To turn the other cheek and say
Father, thy will be done today
To pray for those who despise us
By loving with no compromise.

2.
If like the Savior we would live
Then like the Savior, we must be
Prepared to walk the lonely road
That leads us to eternity

To turn away from strife and wrath
Unswerving on the higher path
To love all those who don’t return
Through fire and frost salvation learn.

3.
If like the Savior we would live
Then like the Savior, we must be
Prepared to suffer what we must
To purge out all impurity

To bear the lashes, though unjust
Patiently in God to trust.
To long endure, though we diminish
At last declare that it is finished.

4.
If like the Savior we would live
Then like the Savior, we must be
Prepared to take our place on high
When from our mortal bonds we’re free

To enter in that holy rest
Rejoicing there among the blessed
Inheriting a royal throne
Victory through God alone.
