81. We'll bear the Cross

1 No love to give, no tears to weep,
No cross for him to bear,
Whose anguish lav'd in drops of blood
That lonely midnight prayer.

Refrain:
Oh, welcome sorrow, tiol, reproach,
Whate'er our cross may be.
With joy, thou precious Lamb of God,
We'll bear that cross for thee.

2 Shall Jesus wear the cruel thorns,
And yet no pain be ours;
Must he a path of suff'ring tread,
And we a path of flow'rs. [Refrain]

3 Dear Saviour in thy glorious name,
Our every foe we'll face,
We'll fight like soldiers in thy cause,
And conquer by thy grace. [Refrain]

4 Yet, till our latest moment come,
Thy cross on earth we'll bear;
Then rise victorious through thy blood,
A heavenly crown to wear. [Refrain]
