Written to accompany the memory verse for Kids Club 2017 at The Crossing in Columbia, MO. The verses of this song are the words of Jesus from Luke 9:23 (NIRV). The rest of the song is our response to Jesus' call to follow him & what that means for our lives.


“Whoever wants to follow me 
must say no to themselves.  
They must pick up their cross every day 
and follow me.”

I will lose myself to find Him,
Lose my life to find it.
He lost His life to find me,
Jesus gave His life for me.

I wanna live a bigger life.
He gave His life for me.

I’ll follow, I’ll follow Him.
(Pick up your cross everyday.)
He gave His life for me.

I believe life is bigger than just me,
even if that’s hard for me to see.
I believe it is better to follow Him,
even if that’s hard for me to see.
