There's a Crown for Your Cross

There's a crown for your cross, when the teardrops that stray

Published in 12 hymnals

Representative Text

1 There's a crown for your cross, when the teardrops that stray,
Will be driven forever away;
When the cares that oppress will at last be laid down,
You'll be given a beautiful crown.

Chorus:
There's a crown for your cross, there is gain for your loss,
You'll be given a crown for your cross,
There's a beautiful crown when your cross is laid down,
You'll be given a beautiful crown.

2 There's a crown for your cross when the day-light shall dawn,
When the night's dreary shadow's are gone;
You will meet with glad smiles and never a frown,
You'll be given a beautiful crown.

3 There's a crown for your cross where the sweet flowers grow,
On the banks where bright waters doth flow;
With a robe and a harp when the cross is laid down,
You'll be given a beautiful crown. [Chorus]

4 There's a crown for your cross and a power divine,
There's a love all around you will shine;
When the cross for the crown is forever laid down,
You'll be given a beautiful crown. [Chorus]
