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.
