2112. Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone

1 Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
and all the world go free?
No, there's a cross for everyone,
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's a crown for me.
