If Christians are hated, berated and booed
Silenced and sidelined and misunderstood
The world hated Him, they will hate us too
But they will know that we are Christians by our love

If following Jesus comes at a cost
We find the repayment, reward for our loss
By the beauty of lives that are changed by the Cross

Most often it’s a scarred church that truly extends
His love and His nail-scarred hand to them
Yes, it is worth
The sacrifice, the cost
To see the beauty of a life that is changed by the Cross
