658. 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 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 O precious cross! O glorious crown!
O resurrection day!--
when Christ the Lord from heaven comes down
and bears my soul away.
