Representative Text

1 Bear the cross ye sons of men,
With love's best ambition;
Jesus bore it all alone
For the world's remission.

Refrain:
Bear the cross, bear the cross;
He bore all for thee
With a Savior's loving heart:
'Twas on Calvary.

2 "It is finished," hear Him say,
Precious promise given!
Will you at the cross today
Fix your hearts for Heaven? [Refrain]

3 Bear the cross, then until death
Shall relieve the burden,
And you'll find sweet rest and peace
Just beyond the Jordan. [Refrain]
