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 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.
3 Upon the crystal pavement, down
at Jesus' pierced feet,
joyful, I'll cast my golden crown
and his dear name repeat.
4 Oh, precious cross! Oh, glorious crown!
Oh, resurrection day!
Ye angels, from the stars come down
and bear my soul away.
