1 Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No, there's a cross for ev'ryone,
And there's a cross for me.
2 How happy are the saints above,
Who once went sorrowing here!
But now they taste unmingled love
And joy without a tear.
3 The consecrated cross I'll bear
Till death shall set me free;
And then go home my crown to wear,
For there'a crown for me.
4 Upon the crystal pavement down,
At Jesus' pierced feet,
Joyful I'll cast my golden crown
And His dear name repeat.
5 O precious cross! O glorious crown!
O resurrection day!
When Christ the Lord from heav'n comes down
And bears my soul away.
