1 No love to give, no tears to weep,
No cross for him to bear,
Whose anguish lav'd in drops of blood
That lonely midnight prayer.

Oh, welcome sorrow, tiol, reproach,
Whate'er our cross may be.
With joy, thou precious Lamb of God,
We'll bear that cross for thee.

2 Shall Jesus wear the cruel thorns,
And yet no pain be ours;
Must he a path of suff'ring tread,
And we a path of flow'rs. [Refrain]

3 Dear Saviour in thy glorious name,
Our every foe we'll face,
We'll fight like soldiers in thy cause,
And conquer by thy grace. [Refrain]

4 Yet, till our latest moment come,
Thy cross on earth we'll bear;
Then rise victorious through thy blood,
A heavenly crown to wear. [Refrain]
