1 Must Simon bear his cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No! there's a cross for every one,
And there's a cross for me.
Yes, there's a cross on Calvary,
Through which by faith the crown I see;
To me 'tis pardon bringing:
O, that's the cross for me,
O, that's the cross for me,
O, that's the cross for me.

2 How faithful does the Saviour prove
To those who serve him here!
They now may taste his perfect love,
And joy to hail him near.
Yes, perfect love will dry the tear,
And cast out all tormenting fear
Which round my heart is clinging:
O, that's the love for me, etc.

3 We'll bear the consecrated cross
Till from the cross we're free,
And then go home to wear the crown;
For there's a crown for me.
Yes, there's a crown in heaven above,
The purchase of my Saviour's love,
For me at his appearing:
O, that's the crown for me, etc.
