Jesus, I my cross have taken

Jesus I my cross have taken is one of the many x-hundred year old hymns that have been given a new lease of life by overhauling the music it is set to. In the case of this hymn, the music has been reworked by Bill Moore and can be found here. However, the original words are still quite dated. For instance, one of the later verses end with the line 'child of heaven, canst thou repine?' Repine? What the heck is that?! I have been asking people for nearly 9 months now (since I first heard the new arrangement) and still haven't met anyone who knows what that word means.

So, I have set about updating the words (I seem to have a habit of doing things like this) but in such a way that the original sense or meaning is not lost or diluted. Here are my updated words, and I hope the prove useful and uplifting for you and your church.

So, to give me a break every now and then from the work of preparing to preach Revelation, I've been working on a piece of composite artwork to act as my title screen. And here it is...
