Author: Allen Meter: 188.8.131.52 Appears in 1,105 hymnals Scripture: Mark 10:21 Lyrics: 1 Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No, there's a cross for every one,
And there's a cross for me.
2 This 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 And palms shall wave, and harps shall ring,
Beneath heaven's arches high;
The Lord that lives, the ransomed sing,
That lives no more to die.
5 Oh, precious cross! oh, glorious crown!
Oh, resurrection day!
Ye angels, from the stars coming down,
And bear my soul away. Topics: The Christian Life Courage and Triumph; Bearing the Cross
