The Son of man must suffer many things,
Before hope of the redemption He brings;
If any man who comes after Jesus Christ,
Deny himself and follow the one sacrificed;
Let him take up his own cross everyday,
And unto the Heavenly Father let him pray;
For whoever saves his life will truly lose,
Who loses his life the Father won't refuse;
Losing the life for Christ in His namesake,
Becoming Heavenly bound as they awake;
So what does one profit the world he gains?
As a right to his own soul he not retains.
All some people look for is glory and fame,
Because of their ego wanting the acclaim;
They feel as to be hot shots king of earth,
Looking for the wealth and all of its worth;
Little do they think in reaching their goal,
That Satan invaded taking over their soul;
True wealth and joy comes from salvation,
By accepting Christ as Savior in jubilation.
