Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	I must needs go home by the way of the cross, 
	There's no other way but this; 
	I shall ne'er get sight of the gates of light, 
	If the way of the cross I miss. 

2.	I must needs go on in the blood-sprinkled way, 
	The path that the Savior trod, 
	If I ever climb to the heights sublime, 
	Where the soul is at home with God. 

3.	Then I bid farewell to the way of the world, 
	To walk in it nevermore; 
	For The Lord says, "Come," and I seek my home, 
	Where He waits at the open door.

	The way of the cross leads home, 
	The way of the cross leads home; 
	It is sweet to know as I onward go, 
	The way of the cross leads home.
