Must Jesus Bear

Verse 1:
Must Jesus bear the cross alone,
And all the world go free?
No, there’s a cross for every one,
And there’s a cross for me.

Verse 2:
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.

Verse 3:
Upon the crystal pavement, down
At Jesus’ piercéd feet,
Joyful, I’ll cast my golden crown,
And His dear name repeat.

Verse 4:
Oh, precious cross! oh, glorious crown!
Oh, resurrection day!
Ye angels from the stars come down,
And bear my soul away.

T. Shepherd/C,M.
