Mark 8:34 (Listen)

34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.

(ESV)

2 Corinthians 4:16 (Listen)

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self1 is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

2. Yea, Lord, ’twas Thy rich bounty gave 
My body, soul, and all I have 
In this poor life of labor. 
Lord, grant that I in every place 
May glorify Thy lavish grace 
And serve and help my neighbor. 
Let no false doctrine me beguile 
And Satan not my soul defile. 
Give strength and patience unto me 
To bear my cross and follow Thee. 
Lord Jesus Christ, 
My God and Lord, my God and Lord, 
In death Thy comfort still afford.
