1 I’ll bear the cross for Jesus’ sake,
Tho’ heavy is the Load;
For when the cross I gladly take,
It lifts me up to God.
2 I’ll bear the cross, and ever will
His true disciple be,
Who up the side of Calvary’s hill
Once bore His cross for me.
3 I’ll bear the cross from day to day,
As needed strength is given;
And with it climb the upward way,
The royal road to heaven.
4 I’ll bear the cross while life shall last,
And never lay it down;
Till all the toil of life is past,
And I receive my crown.Source: Hymns of the Kingdom: for use in religious meetings #136
