Bear the Cross

Representative Text

1 O brother, will you bear the cross
For Jesus everywhere,
Count all things gained for Him but loss
And all His favor share?

Bear the cross, bear the cross,
Ever stand by the cross alone;
Bear the cross, bear the cross,
For the blood-stained cross we own.

2 The glorious cross I love to bear
For Christ my blessed Lord;
Nor in the conflict will I fear—
He doth all grace afford. [Refrain]

3 How sweet will be the cross to you
When all is left behind,
When all things lost but Christ in view
Within thy heart enshrined! [Refrain]

4 Yes, Lord, for Thee I do forsake
All friends and earthly store;
I’ll suffer with Thee at the stake,
Rejoicing evermore. [Refrain]
