Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

1.	Must Jesus bear the cross alone, 
	And all the world go free? 
	No, there's a cross for ev'ryone, 
	And there's a cross for me. 

2.	How happy are the saints above, 
	Who once went sorrowing here! 
	But now they taste unmingled love, 
	And joy without a tear. 

3.	The consecrated cross I'll bear 
	Till death shall set me free; 
	And then go home my crown to wear, 
	For there's a crown for me. 

4.	Upon the crystal pavement down, 
	At Jesus' pierced feet, 
	Joyful I'll cast my golden crown 
	And His dear name repeat. 

5.	O precious cross! O glorious crown! 
	O resurrection day! 
	When Christ the Lord from heav'n comes down 
	And bears my soul away.
