Hymn Scripture Challenge with Patter Cross - 2013 - # 1 - Lift High the Cross

To start the year off Patter has shared an old hymn that I do not remember ever singing - Lift High the Cross.
If you would like to read about the writer of this hymn and also hear a version of this hymn please visit Patter's blog  HERE

This year as I am busy with added commitments I am only making a  6 x 6 digital page for these challenges. I display them in sleeves from an album and hung on a frame that my husband made for me.

I found a longer version of the hymn and liked a verse that was not included on the version that Patter shared. So that is the verse I have shared on my artwork along with a Scripture that I felt fitted the verse well.
Here are some words by Oswald Chambers that I found:

"I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me."  
( these are Jesus words found in John 12:32)
The one thing we have to do is to exhibit Jesus Christ crucified, to lift Him up all the time. Every doctrine that is not embedded in the Cross of Jesus will lead astray. 

Here is my artwork:
