Representative Text

1 In the conflict of life
‘Mid its storms and its strife,
Tho’ its billows of sorrow may roll,
We will march bravely on,
Tho’ the last hope seems gone,
And bear the cross for Jesus.

Bear the cross, the hallow’d cross,
Bear the cross for Jesus,
Day by day, along life’s way,
O bear the cross for Jesus.

2 When in sunshine or rain,
Either pleasure or pain,
When in joy or in heaviest woe,
We will trust in his might,
Tho’ the way’s dark as night,
And bear the cross for Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Would you have peace and rest,
Of earth’s pleasures the best,
And in Heaven a mansion of light?
Seek our Saviour so kind,
Leave your sins far behind,
And bear the cross for Jesus. [Refrain]

4 When life’s journey is o’er,
We will leave this drear shore,
And go to our heavenly home,
On that beautiful strand,
In our own Father-land,
We’ll wear the crown with Jesus. [Refrain]
