upbeat SATB piece with "cross" theme

I'm looking for something upbeat and fun for my choir for Holy Cross Day, September 14.  It should be fairly easy since it will be our first Sunday back.  It seems like most pieces with a "cross" theme are sedate, and I don't want something sedate for our first Sunday back.  Something a cappella (with very easy harmonies) or accompanied by piano, please, and no divisi.

Glory in the Cross by Dan Schutte has numerous verses useful for different times of year.   Or   Lift High the Cross  (Crucifer)    Both are walking tempo pieces with momentum.
